Author and illustrator Shahrzad Vaziri aims to expose children to classic Persian tales and the message behind them. This dream is finally realized with the publication of her debut book, “Who Is the Strongest of Them All?” (published by Trafford Publishing).

A retelling of a famous Persian story, this book follows the adventures of a curious little bird as he embarks on a thrilling journey to find out the strongest of them all. Persistent and quite nosy, the little bird travels far and wide. He talks to the ice, the wind, a sheep, a farmer and many more in order to get an answer. Can he succeed?

An excerpt from the book:
    He asked the ice “Are you the strongest of them all?”
The ice said “No, I am not. If I was the strongest, the Sun could not melt me.”

With its colorful and quirky illustrations, “Who Is the Strongest of Them All?” offers an engaging and humorous narrative that will captivate the readers’ imagination while also teaching them a valuable lesson. The author hopes that they will appreciate folktales and classic stories and recognize that the art of storytelling comes in many forms.
