In The Burdock field, children from an ordinary playground witness completely unusual events. Someone turns into a frog, black holes grow in socks, a mysterious gentleman walks with a storm cloud on a string, the swing comes alive, and boredom escapes from Ms Dora's box. Can a certain old lady and her cat be behind all this?

Katarzyna Ryrych's The Burdock Field won the literary award for a book for children of the Polish Section of IBBY 2017.

The author of the translation of the book, Bożena Antoniak, is a leading translator of Polish literature into Ukrainian and the owner of the Urbino publishing house.

The Burdock Field has also recently premiered in Belarus on the occasion of the 27th International Book Fair in Minsk.
