Abdulla Barievich Alishev was born on September 15 (September 2, old style), 1908 in the village of Kayuki of the Spassky district (now the Spassky district) into a peasant family. Alishev is a versatile talented writer. With the same ease he took up a story, then a play, then a verse, then an essay. He was fond of music, then technology. But he had one passion that he carried through his whole life, and which largely determined his creative path - this is love for children. Poet, novelist and playwright, he wrote mainly for children. Alishev, as a children's writer and a connoisseur of the soul of children, paid great attention to the education of a young succession of writers-journalists. He died in 1934 in his village.
