Bilingual (Polish-English) educational comic books series presenting selected aspects of Polish history. For parents and teachers alike, it is more and more difficult to convince children to open and read a book. The situation changes when we offer them a comic book or a computer game. This new idea of teaching Polish history by reading comic books has so far proven to be effective. Presented in an exciting style, comics draw the attention of children as well as their parents. At the end of each comic is a short dictionary listing of old Polish terms along with a list of Polish-English vocabulary.
