Up Against the Troublesome Four
Can goodness be seen through a telescope?
Gülsevin Kıral, who is an award winning author of entertaining children’s books full of mystery and fun, touches upon the importance of solidarity and standing against injustice in her new book.

With its lively style and realistic characters, the book covers various interesting themes like bullying among friends, astronomy and moving to a new place.
