It is written true to level (8-12), has a great story flow, and is not overly simplistic as others at this age group are. The names are unfamiliar but not difficult. The factual information at the back in the Authors Note was also a great start for further interest into Persian culture and stories.
The pictures and narrative is absorbing and keep you involved for hours and days.
I've read it to my son and he read it himself too several times.
He has put into action all the main charaters, such as Abtin, Manouchehr, Simorgh and so on. A few Zoroastrian terms such as Tishtar, Anahita, Ahura Mazda and Ahriman are mentioned in this book.
I liked the book. It however could be more attractive to younger readers, having some colurful illustrations, that hopefully will appear in the coming edition.
It is a good attempt to bring Iranian legends and mythology to the western readers and childern of Iranian decent.
