In 2012, Boomba Doomba entered the world of literature as a curious and ingenious man, always restless and willing to learn more. Following his travels round the peripheries of the universe in the first book, this time he gets to town. “Where else, if not in a town, one can find friends” - Boomba Doomba decides and the adventures begin in Dangling Bagels Street.

Intricate labyrinths of streets, whispering shadows and mysterious balls of fumes, i.e. everything that is described in this book happened almost in reality. “This place in Vilnius had the name of Kaminai earlier. I used to walk along and across the street and later Boomba Doomba dropped by”, – says the author of the book. This book offers something new: empty spots for kids to colour where all pictures are joined to make a painting almost 10 meters in length.

“Boomba Doomba and the Creation of the Universe”, the first children’s book by Tomas S. Butkus, received the Most Significant Debut 2012 award from the Lithuanian Section of the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) was among TOP 5 children’s books of 2013. In 2015, Boomba Doomba represented Lithuania in Bologna Book Fair.
