The Big “No Way!”

Veliký tůdle

Language: Czech
Genre: Children’s and Young Adult

The author’s exquisite play with the language, which could stand comparison to the nonsensical works of Christian Morgenstern or Edward Lear, offers minute games with the world that surrounds us. The leading role is played by strictly observed rhythm, unbelievably pointed verse, literally realised idiom, amusing homonyms, and above all the unlimited fantasy of a child, that is just discovering the secret chamber of its mother tongue.
