Even in the tiniest flat there are plenty of suitable spots for animals: A chicken’s nest would perfectly fit in a pot and some animals are flat or can curl up without needing much space.

Pina

written and illustrated by Elif Yemenici

Pina is so happy in his house. His warm home is full of peace. And outside? That’s where Pina gets a little bit scared. Maybe for him, to discover the beauties outside, a moon strawberry or a bird plum is needed…

Loved for her books which she writes and illustrates herself, Elif Yemenici uses a different technique to tell her story this time, combining her illustrations with the models she has created. Depicting the anxiety, courage, and joy of Pina, who is afraid to leave his house, this illustrated story is also a visual feast.
