Ismet Bertan who is known for his unique novels depicting ancient Anatolian civilizations is using his incredible power of observation and his cinematographic language to invite his younger readers to the world of animals living in the streets. The story is about those animals bought without thinking and then thrown out to the streets all of a sudden  like an old decorative object. The life struggle of these animals left out in the streets is being recounted from their point of view.  The novel that dwells upon the friendship among three different animals with different characteristics and looks, promises an interesting reading experience on animal rights, love and solidarity.
