No one can be indifferent to exciting family secrets…

In this brand new book from the beloved author of children’s novels, three friends who are in love with planes and who are curious about stories, unveil the mystery behind a family secret. With the distinctive characters and the multilayered plot he created, Açık brings a versatile approach to the theme of intergenerational communication.

She starts each day with the delicious breakfast prepared by her “Kitchen Bird”, she learns new words from him, and every day after school she goes together with her close friends Behice & Nazım to watch the airplanes gliding through the sky. The old photo album she brought out mothballs for her homework, upsets the balances at home, opening the way to revealing a family secret!..
