"familly" book for children and adaults is meant not only
for people who didn't pay attention at school (and will find some
surprising information in our history), but also for the entertainment
of swats (the more erudite reader can enjoy the reverse pages with
more detailed information and points of interest). If you unfold
the book like a concertina, you will find, opening before you, a
9-metre-long landscape full of small scenes from prehistoric hunters
to the present. Facts, information and chronological tables are
includes for each period and the comix texts and cartoon characters
provide a humorous, ironic view of the Czech past.
