This is the only thing I bought for myself at the second hand market on Queen's day (April 30th). I was pleased to discover these illustrations by Max Velthuijs, I only knew his Kikker books. I have to admit, before I had kids I was hardly interested in children's books. So I wasn't very familiar with the classics. And Kikker by Max Velthuijs is definately one of the Dutch classics. Things have changed; nowadays I love children's books, at least, the ones that are beautifully illustrated!
