The amazing story of a child who chooses to cherish life!

Behiç Ak added a new one to his children’s novels which are reflecting the rich inner worlds of children, their questioning of life, and curiosity. Like all of his books, this new book is also adorned with his masterful illustrations. The novel rebels against the human beings who ignore right to live of every living being and relays important topics such as nature, power, rights and success with a lyrical narration. The story tells about a boy who chooses to observe and recognize living beings instead of destroying them. Wrapped with the magic of living in harmony the book is a candidate to be among the unforgettables of children’s fiction.

After getting lost on a nature trip they go out with his uncle, he finds himself in the battleground in the world of rabbits, skunks, giraffes and foxes. Now he has to make a choice both listening his heart and using his brains.
