PICTURE BOOK | The Exciting And Not At All Sad Story Of The Broken Clock or How Do You Drink Tea In Space?

In this book, you may get caught in giant waves. Perhaps you will take a ride in a 3-bed castle. Who knows, maybe you can run for a score in an exciting soccer gamer. It is also possible to let it all go and make your art speak. Do whatever you want, but don't forget: A broken clock is more than a broken clock!

This is the story of two brothers and the first chapter of a series of three books. The little one is playing soccer with his toys in the living room, but the ball hits the clock and it breaks. Moreover, this clock is very precious to his parents. Meanwhile, his big brother appears. The little one admires his imagination and misses the adventurous games they used to play together. But now he is a teenager and what is worse, he is in love with a brown-eyed girl. The little brother is all alone with his toolbox. Let's see how he will get rid of this trouble. A surprise awaits him at the end of the book.
