Some children in Turkey loved the story of 'Our Colourful World' and they drew pictures of their 'Friend from Outerspace'. Have a look at the online exhibition here.

There are also some great videos of their pictures which a Turkish TV company made. Have a look and let us know what you think. They're fantastic, aren't they?
