An AWAIR Pick!!! 25 May 2011
By AWAIR Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Wonderful Story of Zaal: A Persian Legend. Retold by M. and N. Batmanglij, paintings by Franta.
The magnificent paintings by Franta are interspersed with the English text and the Arabic script, here used to render the original Persian language. This is an ancient story from the Persian oral tradition, first written down in the sixth century, and later in 1010 by Ferdowsi in his famous epic poem, the Shahnameh or Book of Kings. This is the story of the baby Zaal, banished by his father but rescued from death by a magical bird who raises the child in his extraordinary castle high on the magic mountain. Here are lessons about power and the path to real wisdom and love.
