There are many things that Qor-Qori knows and many other things that he doesn’t. ‘I Know’ and ‘I Don’t Know’ books make children familiar with thinking and asking (two essential life skills) through simple, fascinating narratives.
Samaneh Ghasemi was born in 1981. As a child, she had no toy or dull to play with. So, she would amuse herself devising and improvising handiworks with paper and scissors. This early attraction to dimensions of shapes and cuts led her to designing books much later. Her first book was published when Samaneh was only 18. She graduated from university with a bachelor degree in graphics and later, she took a master's degree in children's literature. She has a great interest in creative and innovative designs in her books which are intended to entertain readers not only with the illustrative content but also with how the books and pages are designed. She believes that creative books can help children learn and enjoy newer and more dynamic aspects of the world. She regards writing for children as the best part of her life, and tries to incorporate themes that appeal to all children including those living in her own country. She has won many national awards including The Flying Pencil Award for The Best Children Book (Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA), The Best Toy Book Award (the Turquoise Festival) and the Silver Turtle Award for The Second Best Children Book. She has written books extensively with great success: Yum! Yum! (2015), Find It Yourself (2011), Round, Round, Turn it Around! (2012), A Brand New Friend, (2015), and A Good Place, A Good Sleep (2019).
