Have you ever folded a poem? Each of the poems shows the spirit of making an origami item. When a young boy uses his imagination, the poems and animals he is creating, come to life. You don't need to know the ins and outs of the beautiful art of paper folding, you just need a comfy chair to sit back, relax in and stop and enjoy some fun and different poetry. You do not have to be a kid to read these neat poems, just a kid at heart. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

In beautiful, poetic prose this is a tale retold of the seven princesses and the king whose life they influence. The first translation into English, the poem (originally Haft Paykar) is a wonderful story of powerful women, important lessons, and interesting historical information as well. It is for ages 8 and up or as a family read. Great for a classroom, personal library, or anyone interested in Persian literature or the poet Nuzami. Mistry Nilesh's illustrations also beautifully done are very true to the feel of the text. Great companion for Lillian Hammer Ross's book Daughters of Eve: Strong Women of the Bible. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
