Ahmadreza Ahmadi is one of the greatest and most famous contemporary poets in Iran. He writes for children as well, but his children’s books are different from those of other authors. His books have been the subject of many discussions among those working in the field of children’s books in Iran. He is a writer whose books are read by children and adults alike. His children’s books should thus be called ‘everyone’s books’. Behind seemingly simple and childish stories, these books present adults with deep questions about life.
He was nominated for a Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2010
