Kim Bu Gelen?
Who is Coming?
Editor: Müren Beykan
The mystery of the unknown has never been this much fun!
A distinctive title that will catch both children’s and adult’s attention from young illustrator Gökçe İrten! The artist, who makes the readers think on communication through the language of illustrations, is inviting us to an entertaining adventure. Whilst triggering the curiosity, she is narrating with her unique genre the notions of littleness-grandeur and struggling for one purpose without giving up. This silent book whose surprise is hidden inside, is literally for the parents who would like to spend quality time by doing visual reading with their children.
An unknown thing is approaching three chickens for which they are not tall enough to see. The one who’s coming has giant feet and thumping steps. Are they legs or pillars? They jump, they bound but nothing works for them to understand who’s to come.
