It got very good opinions as I see. It's a shame though, that most Polish children didn't read it. It has been more than 40 years before the book was published here - first edition in Brasil 1964, and in Poland - 2009!
Some of rewiews:
I bought Fikus for my godson at the fair in the Palace of Culture, Warsaw. From what I know he already has a pink elephant "period". Will there be any mascot - a Fikus replica?
The author has a keen eye and feeling. My three and five-year kids squealed with joy, they liked the book such much. They already have Plush elephant at home, so do not asking for a new one. Just overheard that they want to change his name to Fikus. I wonder if this maneuver succeeds...
Fikus penetrated through the soul of the child, knowing his desires, secrets and dreams. This elephant made of several rags is ordinary because authentic and extraordinary - the world is constantly impresses him. Each young child has their Fikus. Adults sometimes meet him - those who managed to keep a bit of their naivety and spontaneity.
