A story about childish adventures that can happen just around the corner, about loneliness that comes from absentee parents, and about friendship that is strengthened by shared troubles. When you’re ten years old, spending the summer holidays in the city is the most boring thing in the world. But when you learn that the abandoned house next door has become a haven for a pack of thieves and you get your hands on an old treasure map, boredom quickly turns into adventure. What can stop Olek and Julka from solving the mystery of the treasure? A mean aunt, a chain-smoking nanny, and a mysterious candy-eater. What’s at stake? The life of their beloved dog Dumpling.
