Petr Šmalec / Old Maid Black Peter

The classic card game, Old Maid, with outstanding illustrations by Petr Šmalec. The author, whose Alphabet is now a cult book, here works with the idea of the jobs people do: each pair of cards depicts the worker and workplace. As always, the strength of Šmalec’s illustrations is their wit, surprising combinations, as well as the playful and intelligent connections he makes, which help the youngest readers to understand the world. For children of 4 up. The cards also have a companion ring-bound book, Tell Me What You Do?
