Mikolay and Julia, two five year old wizards, are searching the attic. Mikolay explores the attic on a regular basis and is always able to find the most unusual magical objects, which his mummy collects.
This time he is looking for a wand for Julia. Julia doesn't have a wand yet because she is not allowed to have one, like Mikolay. However Mikolay always breaks the rules and has been the proud owner of a wand for some time.
Suddenly amongst the boxes Mikolay notices a very tall and fast moving Shadow, which swiftly disappears through the wall.
Without much thinking Mikolay decides to follow the Shadow, despite Julia's reservations.
The Shadow leads the two of them to a very scary place, called "Circus", where they discover locked cages containing children and animals.
In no time at all Julia is organizing a rescue mission, which unfortunately doesn't run as smoothly as she would like.

Author's notes "Mikolay & Julia Adventures" by Magda M. Olchawska
I have always liked stories about wizards, witches and fairies. More, I wanted to be one when I was a kid.
My other childhood dream was to travel to distant countries, which is a bit hard to fulfil because I'm afraid of flying.
When I had my son, I decided that it was the right time to start fulfilling my dreams &... I decided to write about the adventures I would love to have. From the combination of those three ingredients Mikolay & Julia came in to existence.
Mikolay & Julia are two five-year-old wizards in training who travel all the time. Not even necessarily to different countries but different dimensions and magical places.
I wanted the Mikolay & Julia stories to make our children think about their behaviour towards our planet, each other etc. Each story revolves around a different subject matter, helping the kids to get to know the world around them.
In each story I try to teach children something, i.e. "Mikolay & Julia Meet The Fairies" has an environmental message at the end. "Mikolay & Julia In the Attic" warns children from talking to & getting engaged with strangers.
I also wanted the illustrations to be different from what you normally see in children's books & stories. Joanna Gniady, the wonderful illustrator, used real eyes for all the characters as well as making everyone wears cowboy boots. Even a little cat has a pair. I wanted to create something very unique and imaginative with an unusual world surrounding two very unique and imaginative little wizards.
I hope parents find my stories useful & helpful with educating kids about different subject matters.
I have enjoyed writing Mikolay & Julia's stories immensely. I hope you will enjoy reading them.
Mikolay and Julia live in the same neighbourhood and attend school together on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Every other weekend, they attend a special Magical Weekend School for children with magical abilities. Julia really likes school. She is one of the top students. But Mikolay, unlike Julia, wouldn't mind at all if there weren't as many Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays! He doesn't mind the weekend school because he is allowed to do lots of magic, which he really likes and is very good at. When Mikolay and Julia are not at school, they usually go exploring and adventuring. Mikolay's and Julia's mummies are both witches and are in charge of fixing things. Mikolay and Julia don't quite know what the job
involves but it must be hard because both mummies don't spend much time at home, which gives Mikolay and Julia plenty of opportunities to explore.
"Mikolay can we go now?" asked Julia "You know that the attic is not my favourite place at all!"
"I'm trying to find a wand for you," muttered Mikolay while going through yet another old box.
"Really? My own wand?" cried Julia clapping her hands with delight.
Mikolay had explored the big attic many times before, and he knew that his mummy misplaced boxes all the time. He was moving between some big boxes, when suddenly, he saw a startling shadow on the wall.
"Did you see that?" gasped Mikolay, pointing directly towards the wall.
"See what?" asked Julia, a bit concerned.
"A really long shadow on the wall!" cried Mikolay.
"Ah, I, um, don't,uh, really want a wand, um, that much. Can we go home now?" "Please?" begged Julia as she moved nervously toward the door. But Mikolay grabbed her hand and whispered: "Lets just see where the shadow is going and after that, we can go right home Mikolay and Julia carefully moved closer and closer to the wall.
