TEHRAN –(Iranart)- A Persian translation of Canadian author Jomny Sun’s book “Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too” has recently been published by Afarinegan Publications in Tehran.
The book has been translated into Persian by Nushin Soleimani.
“Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too” is the illustrated story of a lonely alien sent to observe the Earth, only to meet all sorts of creatures with all sorts of perspectives on life, love and happiness, all while learning to feel a little better about being an alien.
Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, a lonely alien who, for the first time ever, finds a home on the planet after learning that earthlings can feel lonely too. Jomny finds friendship in a bear tired of other creatures running away in fear, an egg struggling to decide what to hatch into, an owl working its way to being wise, a tree feeling stuck in one place, a tadpole coming to terms with turning into a frog, a dying ghost, a puppy unable to express itself and many more.
Through this story of a lost, lonely and confused alien finding friendship, acceptance and love among the creatures of Earth, the readers will all learn how to be a little more human.
“And for all of us earth-bound creatures here on this planet, we can all be reminded that sometimes, it takes an outsider to help us see ourselves for who we truly are,” the book adds.
