“Proszę mnie przytulić” in Macedonian with the support of the Polish Book Institute

In North Macedonia, the translation of Proszę mnie przytulić (“Hug Me, Please!”) was published. The book was translated by Zvonek Dimoski. The publication of the work by Przemysław Wechterowicz and Emilia Dziubak was supported by the Book Institute as part of the ©POLAND Translation Programme.

The book Hug Me, Please! was published by Prozart Media publishing house. It tells the story of Daddy the Bear, who, one day, secretly told the Little Bear that it is enough to hug someone firmly and the world will become more beautiful. And so began the unusual adventure of a father and son, who wander together through the forest and hug everyone they meet on their way. It is a humorous and touching story about how one small gesture, but coming from the depths of the heart, can change people’s lives a great deal.
