When Josephine returns to town after a walk in the woods, a tiger strolls along with her. For a moment she’s not sure what to do, but then she decides to take him home. And after their initial fright, it’s not just Josephine but the whole town that becomes very fond of Tiger. But however much they all love him, Tiger must return to the place where he belongs. And Josephine will take him there … L E M N I S C A AT

Three-time winner of the Golden Brush Award [best illustrator], Jan Jutte applies his characteristic style to paint a passionate picture book, in which the mutual affection between Josephine and Tiger radiates from every page. Everyone would want to have a Tiger like that. But everyone will also understand that real friends let each other live where they are most at home. JAN JUTTE (b. 1954) is an illustrator of numerous picture books. One of his masterpieces is his collection of art for Hans Andersen’s fairy tales. He has won the Golden Paintbrush three times – including for A Hat for the Moon, also published by Lemniscaat Ltd. www.janjutte.nl

Ezzy loves animals. The boy next door Preston however, keeps all sorts of animals, but he doesn’t really care for them. Ezzy wants to help the animals and comes up with a plan. A plan that involves a very special egg...

Back at home, Ezzy got out his Almanac of All Animals and looked under the letter D. Then he put on a warm sweater, strapped on his Lemniscaat largest backpack and started climbing the bare mountain. Three days passed. When Ezzy descended from the bare mountain he was no longer wearing his sweater and his backpack was bursting at the seams.

What is Ezzy carrying with him? What is he up to? Tjibbe Veldkamp tells the comical story of Ezzy and the spoiled boy next door, Preston. Preston keeps all sorts of animals, but he doesn’t really care for them. Ezzy loves animals, but Preston won’t let him near them. But Ezzy’s got a plan! With glorious illustrations, Golden Paintbrush-winner Alice Hoogstad paints the story of Ezzy and his egg. A book to be devoured by anyone who loves Tjibbe Veldkamp, Alice Hoogstad, animals and dragons. And who feels that spoiled little brats should be taught a lesson they won’t forget in a hurry…
