5 hearts: Such a simple, beautiful and melodic story does not often land in Denmark


Forlaget calls it a children’s book. And in the country they’ve picked it up from, Turkey, ‘Wild Things’ has received roses and children’s book awards. But I do not think that Danish children – without several pushes – will sit comfortably in the armchair and sink into a wonderful, quiet, life-wise and poetic narrative about nature and culture, books, pictures and death. The author behind, Burcu Aktas (b. 1980), is an anthropologist and active on several cultural platforms (film, poetry and editing).

Outside is the City. There is smoke and dung, bustle and noise. From inside the apartment, the old woman follows Mualla with her binoculars. She is 85 and a half years old. So she has enough time. Now the crow comes to visit and knocks on the window. And does not a little girl walk down the street who seems familiar?
