Darja Čančíková Bogdanová / Laddugandy

Ťuťka, Furmi, Pfaki or Botaar are almost invisible little creatures noticeable to only extraordinarily observant people who must beware, though, for they are very fragile but given to humour.

The whimsical little book which is something between an album and a comic strip is full of short stories told and illustrated by Darja Bogdanová Čančíková who has created a parallel world brimming with imagination and contemporary urban humour appreciated by today’s children.
