INCLUDES LINKS TO 8 FREE STORIES TO DOWNLOADS Each issue also has a "WHERE IN THE WORLD - LOOK IT UP" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story, on map. HINT - use Google maps. Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories". It is believed that folklore and tales are believed to have originated in India and made their way overland along the Silk and Spice routes and through Central Asia before arriving in Europe. Even so, this does not cover all folklore from all four corners of the world. Indeed folklore, legends and myths from Africa, Australia, Polynesia, and some from Asia too, are altogether quite different and seem to have originated on the whole from separate reservoirs of lore, legend and culture.

Rustem is the most celebrated legendary hero in Shahnameh and Iranian mythology and it is on this volume that the action and adventure movie "The Prince of Persia" was based. The name Rustem is derived from the Persian name Rostam, the name of the epic Persian hero figure who is featured in this volume. In the Shahnameh, Rostam and his predecessors are Marzbans of Sistan which is in present-day Baluchestan (Balòčestàn‎) Province, Iran. The Hero Tales of Rostem/Rostam rank equally alongside the Spanish epics of el Cid, the French, Song of Roland, the Finnish Väinämöinen who features in the Kalevala, the epic of Finland, of Sigurd and Brynhild in the Norse Volsung saga, the adventures and achievements of Beowulf and of the Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Rostam is always represented as the mightiest of Iranian paladins (holy warriors), and the atmosphere of the episodes in which he features is strongly reminiscent of the Parthian period (247 BC – 224 AD). He was immortalized by the 10th-century Persian poet Ferdowsi in the rather lengthy Shahnameh, or Epic of Kings, which contains pre-Islamic Iranian folklore and history. Rustem is best known for his tragic fight with Esfandiar, the other legendary Iranian hero, for his expedition to Mazandaran (not to be confused with the modern Mazandaran province), and for his mournful fight with his son, Sohrab, who was killed in the battle. Rostam was eventually killed by Shaghad, his half-brother who son the of Zal and Rudaba. This volume features 22 of Rustem's adventures across Persia, Afghanistan and the surrounding lands. He wore a special suit into battle, named Babr-e Bayan. Some of these adventures and feats are: Rustem the Wonder Child Rustem the Young Warrior Rustem’s Seven Labors, or Adventures Rustem the Pehliva Rustem’s Romance The Wrath of Rustem Rustem the Spy Later Feats of Rustem The Combat of Isfendiyar Against Rustem The Death of Rustem ============== KEYWORDS/TAGS: Rustem, Rostam, Persia, Iran, Folklore, fairytales, myths, legends, children’s stories, Silk Route, Iraq, east, castles, Shah, Padishah, King, treasure, riches, Kavah, Blacksmith, Feridoun the Glorious, Irij, Gentle Hero, Minuchir, Avenger, Zal, White Hair, Wonder Child, Young Warrior, Seven Labors, Adventures, Escapades, the Pehliva, Romance, Youth, Sohrab, Warrior Maiden, Wrath of Rustem, Spy, Combat, Against Rustem, Siawush, Persian Sir Galahad, Avenger, Gew, Help, Hero-prince, Throne, Later Feats, Isfendiyar’s Seven Labors, Heft-Khan, Death of Rustem, Prince of Persia, Shanemah

Oscar Wilde is remembered today primarily as a brilliant and witty playwright and the author of the novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray. As a result, his shorter pieces of fiction have tended to be neglected, which is a shame for they not only display the same kind of scathing wit, imaginative flourish, and engaging narratives as his other work, but present a wider range of subjects and ideas. As well as such comic tales as “The Canterville Ghost” and “Lord Arthur Savile's Crime,” there are the marvelous fairy stories and fantasies such as “The Selfish Giant,” “The Happy Prince,” and “The Star Child.” The challenge and pleasure of these stories is the simultaneous appeal to both child and adult with their themes of love, truth, and sacrifice, which are as relevant today as when they were written. In this collection are found some of the brightest gems from the treasure trove of Oscar Wilde's writings.
