Alžběta Zemanová / Joska Goes South

Joska’s world and his journey south are not traditional holiday destinations. Have you ever been lost in the city, gazed at the harbor or waited at a bus stop in the mountains? And have you any idea what all has remained hidden? Joska has. In this book, children receive no lectures or explanations. The subject matter they learn about is fun (like nurturing a sense of humor, polishing poetic talent, refining the art of reverie and many other things so useless in the world of today...) and there is so much that they see, experience and even hear. As it happens, the world is not what it seems to be, but what we can see in it.
