Written by Iranian writers, “The Last Apple”, “A Hero Like Me” and “A Man Who Could Speak to Pigeons” have previously been published in Persian by the publishing company.
The books have previously been showcased at several international book fairs in Lebanon, Iraq and several other countries.
“The Last Apple” by Mohammad Khosravi-Rad is about Soleimani’s endeavors to collect and forward tons of relief supplies to help the flood-stricken people in Khuzestan in 2019.
In the last chapter, the writer introduces a game about the book’s leading character designed by Somayyed Mohammadi-Moqaddam.
Translated by Seyyed Kazem Hashemi, the Arabic edition carries the original illustrations by Vahid Khatami.
“A Hero Like Me” is from the Tehran-based French writer and illustrator Claire Jobert. It has been translated by Shams Hejazi.
In an introduction to the book, the publisher calls Soleimani a national hero who must be introduced worldwide. “He was the one who dedicated himself to bringing peace to children and their families,” the publisher wrote.
“We must read this book and try to be like this great man,” it added.
In “A Man Who Could Speak to Pigeons”, Nazanin Behdad-Saberi has fictionalized the key role Soleimani and his soldiers played in breaking the 89-day siege of the northern Iraqi town of Amerli by the ISIS terrorists.
Kamal al-Seyyed is the translator of the book illustrated by Leila Heidari.
Amerli, an Iraqi town of Shia Turkmen located in the Tooz District of Saladin Governorate, was besieged by ISIS terrorists from June 2014, cutting off access to food, electricity and water.
