A Barber’s Tale

A barber tells the other barber, “Hey barber, let’s open a barber’s shop!”These barbers are indeed talented, but they like blabbering so much they find themselves finally in trouble.

In this series the masterful children’s author Ayla Çınaroğlu presents us a bouquet of modern stories told in the traditional Anatolian tale telling style. The impressive tales are embellished with the drawings of Mustafa Delioğlu, the first Turkish illustrator nominated for ALMA. The poetic narration and the imaginary will capture the hearts of children from around the world.
