Abstract: 

Children's literature, according to some scholars, is not proper ground for the postmodern on account of the latter being too complicated for a child readership. On the other hand, there are those scholars who maintain that children are absolutely capable of appreciating the postmodern, or more specifically metafiction, and that teaching a child to think is as significant as causing him satisfaction. The second group has divided children's literature into two main categories: traditional realistic literature, and metafiction. Techniques such as making dialogues between the child, the author, and the characters, intertextuality, and parody, make metafiction more thought provoking than traditional realistic fiction. This research is an attempt to analyze children's metafiction and the ways it can provoke its non-adult readership into thinking. To do so, I have explored the similarities and differences between children's traditional realistic fiction and metafiction with reference to Persian works of metafiction such as Mr. Colorful and the Sly Cat, Pot on Head Demon, and The Same Purple Shoe all by Farhad Hasanzadeh.
