Als Verdriet op bezoek komt

CORRECTION: the Dutch edition will be out on 14th November instead of 31st October. Lets talk about sadness... soon. But first: only 2,5 more weeks before the  publication day for the Dutch version of ‘When Sadness Comes to Call’. (@andersenpress, available from 3d January). ‘Als Verdriet op bezoek komt’ will be available from 14st November. I’m so happy and proud that one of my favourite Dutch publishers Leopold decided to publish it, I could hardly believe it when I found out. I’ve spent many hours as a child reading their books. Also, together with Ria Turkenberg from Leopold I translated my own book to Dutch, my mother language. I have even more respect for translators now - as it’s truly an art form in itself. NL: Daar is ie dan, de Nederlandse editie van mijn eerste prentenboek. Als je hem tegenkomt in het wild, kan je mij een foto sturen? Wees niet bang voor Als Verdriet op bezoek komt! Het is een troostrijk boek - en hopelijk helpt het groot en klein om met iets meer compassie en begrip met deze soms lastige emotie om te gaan.
