A-BA-BA-HA-LA-MA-HA Publishers celebrated its 20th anniversary in the chimney hall of the Writers’ Union of Ukraine.
The format of the holiday anticipated that every participant and guest should climb on a chair (and the more bold ones – on a stool) and read a children’s verse aloud standing on it. Everyone gladly responded to such an offer. Plenty of verses were read aloud, many songs were sang, hundreds of laughters sounded and, most importantly, nobody fell down from the stool.

“TOREADORS…” FOREVER! The Patriarch of Ukrainian children’s books has his first presentation

I remember my granny searching for me, a small schoolboy, all over the yard, and cursing me for not coming to eat my dinner. I couldn’t hear her voice then, because I hid in the raspberry bushes and “transported” myself to the village of Vasiukivka to join a company of inventive guys Yava Ren’ and Pavlusha Zavhorodniy. At that time, accompanied with the “Toreadors” I spent fabulous holidays, and up to now am I grateful to my grandpa Ivan who found for me in his attic the book “Toreadors from Vasiukivka” by Vsevolod Nestayko, already shabby from its frequent rereading.
