A few days ago I posted about the US government's massive export of translated English language books into Arabic speaking countries, and so I looked to see what books Islamic countries are publishing themselves. Here are a few that caught my eye:
Abraham, by Mostafa Rahmandoust, illustrated by Hafez Miraftabi (1383).
None of these show up on Amazon, so I'm assuming they haven't been published in English. A great pity, because what better way to appreciate/get to know/wonder at/be puzzled by other cultures than to read their own stories?
Coincidently, there's a discussion of multi-cultural children's books over at Chicken Spaghetti going on right now...
