I vaguely remember one book from my childhood, which I would be glad to have around. I do not recall much, but I think that it was written by (possibly) Slovenian author, or Slovak. Perhaps even Czech or Polish but that is less likely.
The first part of the book is about small house toys (or animals), where all toys were of the same "species" (e.g. bears), but there is one exception, a small dog called Floki. I think that there is a kid (boy) involved in those stories, and one particular story that I remember is that all the toys gathered and had a race around the apartment. And I also remember that in one story they made cake from carrots (if I haven't mistaken it with some other book).
It is written in the format of several shorter stories.
The second part of the book is about the boy himself, and I think that there is some war involved, and it is more realistic. I remember some duke on a horse marching in (possibly after the war was ended).
Also it was translated into Serbian language. I do not know what is the original language, but i would assume that it is same as authors native language.
