A Five-Star House

Children were asked to make short stories out of interesting experiences. And What came out!

A man who yearns to be as lazy as Galapagos turtles, kids who refuse the debts and credits they will inherit form their parents, a Japanese family who refuses technology and uses an age old telephone, two siblings who get tired of animations and entertainments in a holiday club, old ladies with those astronaut helmets sitting relentlessly in a hairdresser’s shop. In fact, none of these people are aware of the fact that they became heroes of a story.

These stories reveal some negative habits that became a norm in our lives as well as open up a critical window through the eye of a child to the daily life.
