'Shahnameh' stories for children released

A collection of stories on 'Shahnameh' (Book of Kings) has been released for children.

According to ISNA, the six-volume collection is part of a larger 24-volume project inspired by 'Shahnameh' — a masterpiece by the renowned Persian poet Abolqassem Ferdowsi.

It is compiled by Arman Arian and illustrated by Leili Derakhshan and Atieh Markazi.

'Shahnameh' is an enormous national epic created around 1000 AD. Being the loaded canon of purely Persian lexis, the book is the epic narration of Iranian national identity, derived from the grace of an ancient culture along with the gentility of a poetic language.

It mainly recounts the mythical and, to some extent, the historical past of the Persian empire from the creation of the world until the Islamic conquest of Persia in the 7th century.
