Iranian children’s book author Mostafa Rahmandust has written “Zal and the Phoenix” based on a story from Ferdowsi’s epic masterpiece Shahnameh (The Book of Kings) has been published in English.

According to an ISCA report, “Zal and the Phoenix” was translated by Siamak Mazlumi and published by the Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA).

The story of Zal (Rustam’s father) is one of the biggest tragedies in the Shahnameh. The story begins with the father’s desire to have a son and when the baby is born, they see that he is an albino (zal in Persian also means albino). The king of Iran, Sam thinks his son is a fiend and orders that he be taken to the jungle and killed.

Phoenix (Simorgh) is composed of five acts describing Zal’s different stages of life; the birth of Zal, Sam and Zal, Simorgh and Zal, the return of Zal, and Zal and Rudabeh (Zal’s sweetheart).
