What can we do to make everybody happy? How should we arrange the state so that all its citizens are content? Is it easy to govern a state? These are the questions posed by Matt, protagonist of the book King Matt the First by Janusz Korczak.
We invite children and adults to a meeting with the 10-year old king, which will surely prove to be an unforgettable adventure. Together, we will seek answers to the questions concerning the labour of governing a state. Thanks to fairy tale-like illustrations by Iwona Chmielewska, we will enter the world of Korczak’s novel. We will “put on the shoes” of the little king who has to take the throne and arrange anew a war-torn country, experiencing various trials and tribulations in the process.
