Ten books on Iran

I have to admit that Iran is one of those mysteriously appealing places to me. That, Tibet and Easter Island (random yes I know) are some of the places I long to visit. It was with great pleasure that I discovered this list in the Guardian from Kamin Mohammadi – I’d specifically (and to keep this posting on topic with a children’s literature blog) highlight as a particularly special treat the amazingly beautiful graphic novel Persepolis. It’s also an outstanding animated film (the scene where she hits puberty is just brilliant).
