A collection of humorous stories by Wawrzyniec Siedlecki takes the reader into a nostalgic-surrealist journey to the Mazovian village of half a century ago. The author follows the absurdity of a small community's life and its own childhood dilemmas. In lapidary anecdotes the hardness of the countryside, subjected to the cycles of the nature of life, is intertwined with the admiration of the beauty of the world and the warmth of naive emotions.

It is worth going back to childhood. It is worth experiencing once again our little fears, joys and fascinations. It is really worth reading this book. This is our Polish ""Little Nicholas""
