The article devoted to exoticism lost in Alfred Szklarski’s works for the youth that
used to be very popular and are slightly forgotten nowadays. It pays special attention to
the role of exoticism and familiarity in the stories about Tomek Wilmowski’s adventures
and other books written by this author. The researcher also underlines a melancholic
dimension of the book on journeys to distant countries at the time of globalization and
development of “a tourist industry”.
