Sylvia Plath's Children's Stories Translated

Two Children's story by the famous American author Sylvia Plath have been translated into Persian by Niloofar Amraee and published in a book titled 'Mrs. Cherry's Kitchen'.
Sylvia Plath (1932-1963) was one of the most renowned and influential poets, novelists, and short story writers of the 20th century.
The famous author is credited with advancing the genre of confessional poetry and is best known for her two published collections for adults, 'The Colossus and Other Poems' and 'Ariel'. She also wrote 'The Bell Jar', a semi-autobiographical novel published shortly before her death.
Plath struggled with depression and mental illness in her work before meeting an untimely death at the age of 30. In 1982, she won a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for The Collected Poems.
But she also wrote three children’s books, two of which have been translated into Persian by Amraee, who has also translated other children's stories.
She is the daughter of the famous translator and journalist Asadollah Amraee who has translated great works of literature by authors such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jose Saramago, Heinrich Boll, Ernest Hemingway, Isabel Allende and Raymond Carver.
The book tells the story of Mrs. Cherry’s kitchen where each of the household appliances thinks it can perform another’s duties better. Coffee-Percolator wants to make ice cream; toaster wants to make ice cubes; iron wants to put dimpled-squares into waffles. This makes a mess and the kitchen pixies, which authorized the change-about, must clean up the mess quickly before Mr. and Mrs. Cherry return home.
The other story included in the book is 'The It-Doesn’t-Matter Suit' which was originally published in 1966. It is about a young boy named Max who dreams of a suit he can wear for "doing everything". He eventually finds it and then never takes it off.
The Persian translation has been published and released by Darkoob Books which is the children and young adults' section of Donya-ye-Eghtesad Publications.
