WASHINGTON - Dec. 2, 2018 - EntSun -- The Pasha's Garden is a heartfelt, beautifully-told, multicultural children's tale revealed through luxurious watercolor about the vital role insects play in gardening. — Set in an ancient kingdom in Khorasan, The Pasha's Garden is the story of a proud king who, after making a hasty decision which threatens to destroy everything he holds dear, seeks the help of a brave young girl to restore his rightful title... The Flower King.

Inspired by his childhood in Afghanistan, and her passion for watercolor, US Army veteran and Afghan-American author Aria Rahimi and artist Kelly Wolske come together to tell this compelling tale filled with stunning illustrations which leap off the page and transport young readers.

Rahimi was introduced to Wolske's work through her daughter, Branda Czechan, who Rahimi served with in Afghanistan in 2006. Taken with her work immediately, Rahimi proposed a collaboration, to which Wolske — never one to turn down a challenge, quickly agreed. Wolske spent nearly two years years conceptualizing the characters and hand painting the full color pages which now fill the book.

The Pasha's Garden is available online at https://kellywolske.com/thepashasgarden, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and in select stores December 2018.
