Will you mangage more children’s books? This one “Klot-Nalle”, written by Josef Menzel, has pictures by Czech Jiří Trnka. Jiří was a puppet maker, motion-picture animator, film director and illustrator. There is a bunch of nice You Tubes out there if you are interested. “Most of his movies were intended for adults, and many of them were adaptations of literary works of Czech authors or foreigners. Because of his influence in animation, he was called “the Walt Disney of Eastern Europe”.
A few times I have been privileged enough to oppose on students’ work at HDK – School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg/Sweden. The same school I studied design for 5 years.

It’s a story of two sisters who are stuck together through their braids. About awakening, and realization of independence.
Look at the tone in the images. The unsteady skewness and the color scale. Fabulous.
