This book contains poems for children by Polish classic writer Jan Brzechwa. The main aim for me as an illustrator was to create a parallel voice pairing the text. Sometimes my images follow the poems strictly; sometimes they invent something that is not mentioned in text; in a few cases they even mock the poems as I found a few of them irritatingly out of date (they were written in the 1960’s). The illustrations are conceived as river-like strips connected with each other across the spreads through a consistent use of colours and other graphic elements.
