The book Chymeros is at the same time an interesting dynamic project. It is about a 12-year-old boy without an identity. One day he appears in a country called Truthland. The boy Chymeros has to fulfil many tasks on his adventurous trip. The readers help him to fulfil the tasks as well. The author offers the children challenges concerning the story and the main protagonist's journey, by which they are moved from the story into the real life. Therefore, experiencing the story in the book is upgraded to the higher level. The children's fantasy is thus developed, and based on the given clues, the children can visit various places, meet new people, or experience new adventures. Moreover, they participate in future sequel of the story by their remarks and suggestions. The book was awarded The Best Children's Book of the Autumn 2017.
