🎨 Children's Literature & Art History, Themyscira with Amazons

This week, we'll talk to feminist art historian Derya Sayın about women artists presented for Art History books of Children's Literature; close-read the Kumkurdu series, and visit a universe close to Themyscira with Sena Albayrak.

İllüstrasyon: Kristina Digman

Welcome to Piccolo, a magazine interested in Children's and Young Adult Literature. 🪩 You might be a time traveler, pirate, fairy, magician, or mermaid. You don't have to say it—but your secret is safe with me.

🌾 Today we close-read the Kumkurdu series by Deniz Uçan, for I feel lucky to be able to enter her mind through the help of her words. I think you should meet a friend with shiny fur and a wet, black, shiny nose!

💥 Finally, after learning Sena Albayrak's childhood books, we open the door to the universe she wants to live in. Would you also like to be born in Themyscira and be "very close friends" with Diana?
