About the Book:
P5+1 is the latest work by Farhad Hassanzadeh, who is among the most well-known authors for children and young adults in Iran. He has numerous works with national and international acclaim, such as Goodnight Commander. In this collection of short novels for younger readers, there are stories about friendship, unity, sense of humor, curiosity, and of course, lots of fun. In recent years, short novellas for children at the early years of primary school have been celebrated around the world. Many critics, school teachers, and parent believe such books will help them to raise book-loving children and adolescents. G5+1 is one of few Iranian series, with interesting characters, whose relationships and friendships are full of unexpected adventures and life lessons. Therefore, translating of this series would not cause any damage to its authenticity. The stories revolve around 5 kids (and the plus one, is one of the boys’ younger sister) who are neighbors in an apartment, and they face various stories, such as an unwanted birthday, burglary in their building, a strange man, and funny enough, running a house business in order to have enough money to buy out their school. Everybody knows 5 plus 1 equals 6, oh, but not here. Here 5 plus 1 equals storm, typhoon, earthquake, clamor, cheer, glee, and one hundred other things!
