The Emperor Potato IV, by Mohammad Mohammadi

I’ve posted before about the International Children’s Digital Library, a treasure trove of children’s books from all over the world posted on the internet in their entirety.

Here are some illustrations from The Emperor Potato IV,by Mohammad Mohammadi. The illustrations are so expressive and amusing. They’re by Hormoz Riyaahi and Hooman Mortazavi. Click and zoom for a closer look.

The text is in Persian, so I don’t know the plot of the book, but these pictures certainly give an idea of the tone, don’t they?

You can look at the whole book here. If you can read Farsi, please come back and tell us the story.

  1. It appears to be about a war between insects and vegetables.
