    1. Domanska has written a folktale about the origins of the city of Krakow in Poland. I suspect that the dragon is a symbol for some kind of invading army that tried to take over the city way back then. The way the shoemaker got rid of the dragon reminded me of the Trojan horse. I love Domanska's colorful illustrations. Anyone interested in Poland will enjoy this book!


    2. Janina Domanska is a Caldecott honor book winner, hers picture books consistently won critical praise as well as popularity. Domanska has found her inspiration in Polish folk art.

    3. This is an entertaining folk tale from Poland about a shoemaker's apprentice who defeats a dragon. The narrative is fun to read aloud and the illustrations have an old fashioned feel that reminds me of stained glass windows. We enjoyed reading this book together.



    4. Lovely pictures for this founding-of-Poland folktale. Just what I need for my workshops on Poland for the Eurokids festival!
