The author analyzes the books for children and young adults written by Kornel Makuszyński in the interwar period in the context of modernity. The article discusses the motifs of travelling by train, flying by airplane, urban and industrial landscapes, construction of the Gdynia seaport, and others, in selected 1930s novels: Awantura o Basię (Argument about Basia), Wielka brama (The Great Gate), Skrzydlaty chłopiec (The Winged Boy) and Wyprawa pod psem (Expedition with a Dog). On the basis of those works of fiction the author discusses Makuszyński’s attitude to progress, urbanization and technological developments, i.e. the phenomena which absorbed Polish society between the two world wars.
