What if a strawberry had feelings? Would you hesitate to throw it into a blender? Is it really ethical to peel potatoes? Is shredding cabbage heads remorseful? Horror by Madlena Szeliga is a gem of a humorous book with unique, authorial illustrations by Emilia Dziubak, who shows her readers a completely new face. It was created not to scare (well, maybe a little!), but to exercise imagination and play with everyday life.

Two other translations by Karolina Jaszecka have been recently published with the support of the ©Poland Translation Programme: Justyna Bednarek’s Banda czarnej frotté. Skarpetki powracają  (“Black Terry Sock Gang. Socks Are Back”) illustrated by Daniel de Latour and Marta Maruszczak’s Co tam słychać, czyli dziwne dźwięki z głębi ciała (“The Sounds Inside. Strange Noises from Within the Body”) illustrated by Artur Gulewicz.
