About the product The books of the Hungarian writer Eva Janikovski, written on behalf of a child and filled with sparkling humor and light irony, have become classics of children’s literature. But they are also read with great pleasure by adults, for whom it is very important to understand how their children live and what they feel. The main feature of Eva Janikowski’s unique books is the amazing capacity and simplicity of short texts that reveal the inner world of a child with impeccable accuracy. Moreover, it is a kind of dialogue on non-standard topics between children and adults, which helps to bridge the gap between generations. Eva Janikovski graduated from two universities: first in her hometown of Szeged, and then in Budapest. She studied philosophy, ethnography, psychology, sociology and devoted most of her life to working with children and youth. It is not surprising that her works have been translated into thirty-five languages and have received many of the most prestigious literary prizes and awards, including the German Literary Youth Prize. The writer became a Knight of the International Order of the Smile, which is awarded to famous people who bring joy to children, and was also awarded the Officer’s Cross of the Order of Merit for the Hungarian Republic. Based on her books, children’s performances were staged, several cartoons were released. The permanent illustrator of Eva Janikowski’s books was the Hungarian artist Laszlo Reber, laureate of the German Youth Literary Prize and the G.-H. Andersen, as well as the owner of many other awards. It was L. Reber who managed to most reliably convey in his works the inner world of a child. Abstract Every child knows how good it is to be an adult. Children do what they are told, and adults do what they want. But why don’t they do what every child dreams of: they don’t go around in winter without a hat, don’t stroke stray cats, and don’t eat only chocolate for lunch? Let’s figure it out!
