Behiç Ak, has written and illustrated another children’s novel which is reflecting the rich inner world of children, their desire to expand the boundaries of their lives and their curiosity. Bringing together the cats, sites and people of İstanbul with a unique fiction in all the books he has both written and illustrated, he’s this time inviting his readers to a nostalgic site, an old house. He’s describing the living quarters shared by people and animals in an ironical manner from the impish viewpoint of an house cat. A novel winking eye to the feeling of “we can live together” and the necessity of communication between all living creatures.

Although Oktay first was troubled with the idea of leaving his school, he later started to like the idea of moving to a smaller town. A different house, larger playing fields, interesting neighbors and the new zoo to be constructed would change all their habits. But what about Nazlı cat?..
