Jana Stržinar's fairytale is written with a clear goal: she would like to tell the children that the world’s future is in their hands. The author does not hide the educational value of her story, but rather tries to explain it in way which is understandable to children: the questions of ecology are not just the questions of material pollution, but rather the ethical relationship towards each and every being and thing. This relationship includes – lest we forget – imagination and daydreaming, those human notions, without which we would lose our depth.


The foundation of the book’s poetics is a deep-rooted belief in the holy nature of the world, where every living thing has its own place and meaning. Since it is more and more obvious that the human will not be redeem from his or her nihilistic handling of the world with the development of the technology, the ecological motivation of the author’s fairytale heroes are even more important. Therefore I recommend the picture book to all, who would return some of the rainbow hope to our heavens and earth.
