IBNA- Beautifully written children book, ‘Wishtree’ by American author Katherine Applegate has been translated into Persian and published by Iran’s Center for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (ICIDCYA).
The morally bracing fantasy which is aimed at the middle grade (children aged roughly between the ages of eight and twelve) has been translated into Persian by Bahar Alizadeh Saboor and has been released by ICIDCYA in 180 pages.
Trees can't tell jokes, but they can certainly tell stories. . . .Red is an oak tree who is many rings old. Red is the neighborhood "wishtree"—people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red's branches. Along with her crow friend Bongo and other animals who seek refuge in Red's hollows, this "wishtree" watches over the neighborhood.
You might say Red has seen it all. Until a new family moves in. Not everyone is welcoming, and Red's experiences as a wishtree are more important than ever.
Katherine Applegate is the author of several best-selling young adult series, including Animorphs and Roscoe Riley Rules. Home of the Brave, her first standalone novel, received the SCBWI 2008 Golden Kite Award for Best Fiction and the Bank Street 2008 Josette Frank Award.
