Summary/Abstract: The article refers to the works by Zuzanna Orlińska, the creator of works for children and young people which are full of humour, goodness and warmth. All editions of the author’s works were subject to an analysis: Matka Polka, Pisklak, Cierpienia sięciolatka, Ani słowa o Zosi, Stary Noe, as well as Detektywi z klasztornego zamku. The literary protagonists in Orlińska’s novels find themselves in various situations, they go through an internal struggle, they solve detective mysteries, they learn the truths about life, they familiarise themselves with the system of values and the norms of conduct which are valid. The author of these works makes an interesting choice of words which she applies to a situation in which the small protagonists find a platform for understanding. Orlińska appears as a writer for whom the concerns of young people are relevant. The childhood realms whichare presented by the author of Pisklak in her novels for children and young people are realms to which each reader can relate, regardless of his or her age or the time in which he or she grew up.
