The Land of Pretend...

This is a story that I wrote and illustrated for my 4 year old niece, Aliya. Aliya is a beautiful little girl with an exceptionally rich  imagination. She keeps wandering off into her world of make believe, where she plays a ballerina one moment and a pianist the next. While she was visiting me in Istanbul, she took my hand one afternoon and allowed me to accompany her on her flight of fantasy. Here's a glimpse of our journey through the beautiful land of 'pretend'.




These frames hold memories of that wonderful afternoon with little Aliya.
