The Night Sun
The lovely and spicy story of a sister and her little brother…
Following her well-loved novel for young adults Ay Deniz’le Buluşunca (When Moon Meets Sea), Karin Karakaşlı wrote for children for the first time. This book is witnessing the warm and sincere conversation between two siblings. Arya who is in second grade tries to answer the innumerable questions of her brother who is in kindergarten and has an unlimited imagination, and to spare time to play with him.
As far as Arda is concerned the sun can rise at night. Why can’t India be called Sindia? Potions made with spices can aid the dinosaurs on the moon. Someday, some people may steal the moon and not bring it back. Why their mother, who is a teacher, teaches other children rather than teaching them?.. There is no end either to Arda’s imagination, or to his questions! But if his sister Arya weren’t around, there would be no joy in asking these questions or trying to find answers! What about Arya? Is it easy to find answers to all these questions or to be Arda’s sister?..
