Çiçek (Flower) who is tired of hearing her parents say “Come on Çiçek!” decides to be a different flower every day. Çiçek’s mood changes depending on the kind of flower she is. She can be a daisy going “loves me, loves me not” one day and become a cactus showing spines the next day. According to Çiçek who looks at the mirror everyday to check whether she has the pimples that will accompany her growth, the only obstacle to her happiness is her new born sibling. Is it possible that those who say, “You will grow up when you become a sister,” are wrong?.
