Balonowa 5

Picture Book by Mikołaj Pasiński and Gosia Herba

Balonowa 5 is a richly illustrated story about crazy residents of a tenement house. Interesting and funny stories will make children get caught up in the story – and the older ones will be able to read independently thanks to the clear typeface. All illustrations were drawn with coloured pencils.
