The book offers a different expression and questioning beyond the usual children's books with its witty narration.

Zeynep stays with her uncle when her parents go on a business trip; she begins to question after reading the stories written by her uncle and meets the main characters of the book and sees the different aspects of the events as opposed to what was actually written. The author opens a new window by referring to the differences in the book. Like the nice uncle who cooks olive oil dishes to his nephew, the vegetarian dinosaur, the female pirate (fisherwoman), and the peace-loving dragon. In this book, which underlines fact that the reality will only be revealed by questioning, there are the breezes from countries like Mongolia, Tanzania, Nepal, and the colors of the rainbow.
