Persian: Literature has proved marvellous for shaping the silent steps of liberty for the straitlaced Islamic Kingdom of Iran.

Here now is the Persian version of JK Rowling's Christmas fairy tale cum charity gift, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, which has already been translated into 28 languages.

Eager to share a slice of fun, Iran has hopped on board with gusto for the celebrated childrens' tales. Today's Tehran Times reports that the five stories, The Warlock's Hairy Heart, The Wizard and the Hopping Pot, The Fountain of Fair Fortune, Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump and The Tale of the Three Brothers were translated by Mohammad Nurollahi and released recently by Behnam Publications.
