The Mallow Coloured Garden (Book: Branko Ćopić)

I chose to read “The Mallow Coloured Garden” as a farewell gesture to the children’s books that once captivated me, and which I now plan to donate to a local school. I was a child when I first read this book, and I still love it. The author, Branko Ćopić, could be found on the shelves of every school library (maybe it was  compulsory reading). My parents likely purchasing this book, along with several of his other books, for me.

I stumbled upon a well-crafted translation on page 53 of Nevena Lazić’s thesis.

The watercolor sketch accompanying this text replicates the book’s front page (Publisher: Veselin Maslesa, Sarajevo, 1973).
