  • In 2013 I published "My First Mythology" ["Moja pierwsza mitologia"] – a book, in which I take kids on an "ecological" journey through the land of ancient myths, where they meet the baby Zeus in a goat's nursery and where they come to know mythological phraseology. The second volume was published in 2016. I also write poems for children, where a cat surfs the Internet and mosquitos dance the tango, etc. In 2016 I published a collection of poems "The Alphabet among the Animals" that received a nomination for the Polish Section IBBY Book of the Year.
