Iran has mountains striped with snow, dense forests where bears and lynxes still roam, deserts, bazaars...but above all it has stories - of fairies and demons, of a monstrous metal eagle called the okab, of romantic cockroaches and foolish weavers. During her travels, Elizabeth Laird has gathered a wealth of stories, and here she retells, in her own inimitable style, some of Iran's best, with delightfully offbeat illustrations from Shirin Adl.

MEDIA REVIEWS

60 pages in a picture book style with seven takes to remind us, and to tell our children, that Iran is a place of people and not only a political hot-topic.


An ideal book for the teacher to share with children in infant schools. They will be spellbound and enticed by the magic of the sometimes quite complex stories as they transport us into a world of intrigue, love and ancient wisdom.
