Silent Music: A Story of Baghdad is narrated by Ali, a boy who "loves soccer and loud music" but most of all he loves calligraphy. His musings on his struggles to improve at such a beautiful art during a time of threat and war are illustrated by pencil and charcoal, enhanced with digital collage work, with Arabic script on every page.
Get the book (or come see the book on my desk for the next week or so).
