In the present study, the author tries to shed light on the positive and strong points of semiotics of discourse in stylistics studies. This approach claims that literary creation is the product of mass culture and thus its explicit position has been considered as a kind of obstacle on the way to perceive the original identity of style and uniqueness or individuality of the writer. To this end, the child story entitled “white crow” by Vatan Parast (1380), has been selected as the corpus of the study in order to scrutinize the stylistic components. It is worth mentioning that little attention has been paid to this genre. In this study and according to semiotic approach to literary studies, by style, we mean the semiotic flow in interactive process of enunciation. At first, semiotic regimes based on programming and accident have been adopted as the criterion to recognize different kinds of style. Based on accident regime of discourse, existential style presence was defined and its features like imperfection , risk, negation / assertion transcendence of sign , discontinuity and finally challenge have been investigated. One of the results of this study in this genre showed that existential style plays a key role to develop the imagination and creativity of child. The factors like (Nane – sarma and smart crow) who change suddenly the Dasein of subject reinforce the aspects of fantasy in the story. By leaving Dasein , the co –enunciator has the possibility to free him or herself from referential/ closed / and realistic style of presence and takes path beyond the lived present . In determining the genre of children books, the main consequence of this study is that, it is necessary to focus on the stylistic features of the story as a key factor to select signification processes, experience, simplicity or complexity of the text more precisely.
