Saturday, 22 September 2012


Sevim Ak’s book “The Rooster Man and the Pirate”, where the difficulties that a deaf and mute child goes through, was selected for the IBBY catalogue.

Sevim Ak’s “The Rooster Man and the Pirate” was selected to be displayed in the Outstanding Books for Disabled Young People Catalogue of IBBY. This book about the difficulties a deaf and mute child goes through, while steering the reader to look at the disabled from a different point of view, also emphasizes the importance of empathy.

This catalogue is published biennially by IBBY, which is abbreviated from International Board of Books for Young People.
