Book About:

Wedding Dress structurally resembles Iranian old fairy tales. It tells the story of a tailor who wants to make a wedding dress for the moon. But the moon shape changes every night, causing her serious trouble. It is not easy at all to make a dress fitting a changing body shape. Eventually, children watch the wedding in a starry night of the full moon through the tiny loft hatch of the tailor’s cottage. Besides, they get to know the lunar phases very well. 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.
