Book About:

‘Maheni’ tells the story of a boy who’s not able to talk. Not that he is born mute, but it’s more like that he has forgotten how to talk. Instead of talking, he writes and writes. His hands are always tired and he is always running short of papers. But a new neighbor named Maheni, a girl of his age, changes everything for him. She takes a new approach towards him, shutting her eyes on his muteness completely. After a while, he takes an insect out of his throat, which may cause his muteness, and starts talking again. The best Iranian Writers’ series consists of 30 books of which 21 have been published. The series which is a sort of an encyclopedia of noted Iranian writers and illustrators, opens with brief biographies and reviews on their works.

Author About:

Ozra Jozdani, the author, is among the Iranian new wave children’s writers, who takes an aesthetic perspective to create literarily rich stories avoiding direct teaching to young readers. Many of her books have won prizes, namely ‘My Name is Mania’ which was registered in Munich’s International Youth Library in 2007. Maheni Tazhibi, the illustrator, has created a unique atmosphere, perfectly suitable for the dreamy world of the story.
