"In his grandfather's tales, Jim learns the story of his people and of the grandfather who traveled around the world and settled in the United States. A book for a child wondering about his ancestors, part story telling, part history, part sheer magic. Beautifully illustrated with hand-drawn maps and watercolors."
Amanda Cockrell, Director, Graduate Program in Children's Literature, Hollins University

"I don't know what color Judy's eyes are, but they seem to see into the soul like an x-ray can see broken bones. For a long time I have been searching for a book like this about Turkish history and culture. It's everything I have imagined a book like this should be."

Hi everyone, Thanks so much for your great phone card. As an American who's deeply interested in Turkey, I have close friends in Istanbul whom I've called several times. Compared with the other phone card I was using, I find yours so much more economical. I was also able to talk with a friend in Poland for nearly a half an hour once and found I still had a lot of time left. Besides, the connections are really great. Chok teshekkur ederim. You also have a great website with a lot to offer. Keep up the good work. Regards.
