History

In 1887, Canadian illustrator Palmer Cox published The Brownies, Their Book about imaginary little sprites resembling the popular house spirits of Celtic folklore, who inhabit houses and aid in tasks in return for small gifts of food. Cox's Brownies were little men drawn to represent many professions and nationalities who had mischievous adventures together. This series of humorous verse books and comic strips about kind-hearted pixies soon became incredibly popular and were considered the first commercial comic books, the characters of which were used in advertisements for over 40 companies, including Procter & Gamble and Kodak. In 1889, the Russian children’s writer Anna Khvolson wrote The Kingdom of the Little Ones: the Astonishing Adventures of the Forest Lilliputians (Tsarstvo malyutok: udivitelnye priklyucheniya lesnykh chelovechkov). This book was followed by four additional editions in Russia and finally was published in Germany in 1920. After the breakthrough, the stories about Muzilka (Cox’s Dude), the main character of the adventures, and his friends appeared frequently in periodicals. The last known edition in Russia was in 2002. In The Kingdom of the Little Ones: the Astonishing Adventures of the Forest Lilliputians, tiny heroes travel around the world. In the first book, they visit the North Pole and China. In the second, they travel to India, Italy and Switzerland. In the third book, the elves go to Germany, France, England and Holland. Finally, they return home through Germany, Belgium, Austria and Poland. These heroes are endowed with immense curiosity and a passion to discover new and unfamiliar places. In 2014, Julia Shayk, a journalist and lawyer, decided to remake the books for her daughter because both versions of Cox and Khvolson needed editing and corrections to compensate for cultural and social changes of the XXth century. She restructured the text of Anna Khvolson to make the story more coherent; then she translated it into English.

Review:
From the Episode 3 The Elves and the Whale

"Brothers!" called Draggle Tail Sorcerer with a voice full of surprise. "Come, come here! A black mountain with a fountain is approaching us!"
The brownies rushed to Draggle Tail Sorcerer and stood stock-still. On the surface of the Arctic Ocean they saw a giant whale. Out of his nostrils rose a high column of water gushing out like a fountain.
"Godzilla!" cried Murzilka. "This is a magnificent ship! Let's take a ride on it, my friends! An opportunity to sail on such a ship knocks only once!" 

 

From the Episode 2 The Elves at the North Pole

Suddenly came a great wonder! The sky was covered with the colored circles, each coming from one spot. Every minute they became brighter and brighter. All at once, the whole sky flamed with splashes of rainbow light.
The sprites screamed with delight. Everything sparkled and became as bright as on a sunny day. Then, they saw mountains, castles, and caves, all shining like diamonds.
"What is it?" they asked each other.
It was the Northern Lights.

"Brothers!" Murzilka exclaimed. "Look, there are some creatures coming!"
