Childish dreams woven up to the sky!
Beloved by her titles Wanderlust and Dream Girl, the award-winning author Leyla Ruhan Okyay, makes us feel in her last title that every dream which children have is another journey. The author who’s telling a heart-touching story which is full of clouds is erasing past’s traces of pain with colorful dreams and amicability.
