It is with great honor that we congratulate Mr. Farhad Hassanzadeh on his entering the shortlist for the 2020 Hans Christian Andersen Award, the world’s most prestigious award for the creators of children’s and youth literature!
Mr. Hassanzadeh is among our favorite authors who has brought us one of TUTI’s most acclaimed picture books, namely “An Umbrella with White Butterflies”, which will soon be published in Chinese, Korean, and Spanish languages as well. “The Snow and The Sun: The Story of Bijan and Manijeh” – a young adult novel – is another book that he has written for TUTI Books.
This is the second time Farhad Hassanzadeh has been shortlisted for the Hans Christian Andersen Award (first time being back in 2018) and we are all crossing our fingers for his further success. He certainly deserves it!
