Shokoufeh Books, children’s section of Amir Kabir publishing house, has released a collection of short stories in English under the title of “Fables From Afar” in London. The stories, translated into English by Muhammad James, have been selected from the popular Persian book series “Good Stories for Good Children” written by children’s writer Mehdi Azar-Yazdi (1921-2009). Azar-Yazdi wrote the title in eight volumes based on several works of literature, including “Kalila and Dimna”, a widely circulated collection of oriental fables of Indian origin, composed in Sanskrit possibly as early as the third century BC; “Gulistan”, masterpiece of Persian poet Sa’di (1213-1291); and poetry book “Masnavi-e Ma’navi” by celebrated Persian poet Rumi (1207-1273) as well as stories from the Qur’an and the life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), IBNA reported on its Persian website.
