The Colorful Kingdom: Armenian Children’s and Juvenile Literature
Author: Mkrtich Armen

People of Katpis keep the existence of the Colorful Kingdom secret from their children and they vigilantly guard the daily counting of fish-head calendar. However, inspired by stories told by Kharuna–an old woman, children lead by Ile Trapna start off a journey to find and see the enchanting realm of joyful colors and flavors. Overcoming the deathly risk of freezing or getting lost they come across the walls of Unmelting House in the middle of the night…
