Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Iranian Children's Satire

It actually sounds like a satirical post title, but in this case, it's the real deal. The website recently reported on a book festival focused on the market for 5-13-year-old readers, and this apparently includes a weekly "satirical publication for young adults which has been published regularly for the past seven years for students of junior high schools." Wow!

The article also claims that there is nothing like it in America - specifically, nothing regular and satirical for this age group. I'd immediately protest and hold up Goofus and Gallant in America's defense, but no one would take me seriously.
