The Child Writing Poems for the Clouds
Editor: Müren Beykan
Children are as creative as the clouds!
Behiç Ak, master author of humorous and philosophical children’s books, is again reminding his young readers about the forgotten values with this colorful and amusing book. Standing against the notion of a “monotype” child by creating interesting child characters all different from each other, Ak is erasing with clouds the gloom of the modern times. Covering poetry, tales and cats, the book becomes a part of children’s dreams. The impressive illustrations in the book enhances the reading pleasure of children.
Sevgican is an introvert child who adores clouds and likes to get wet under the rain. She is really bothered with the homework projects given every month by her teacher, who is actually her mother. She is neither smart as Batu, nor creative as Erol. One day, seeing the postman who’s carrying no letters but other stuff in his bag, since nobody is writing letters anymore, a brilliant idea hits her mind! She starts to write poems and to share them on the social media. The poems that everyone thinks are written for themselves would change Sevgican’s and all her classmates’ perception of life.
