The Best of the Best spring 2018


Dear book lover, We proudly present our new list of outstanding children’s books. Over the years we’ve fallen in love with every single book we published. We can’t help it – that’s the risk of working with unique artists and outstanding writers! Take for instance the two picture books by Mark Janssen that are featured in this catalogue: surprising stories combined with stunning artwork. What a picture book talent! Then there is Francis by Piet Grobler, an artist recognised worldwide for his exquisite illustrations. Grobler has a very special relationship with Saint Francis, who simply wished for people to be good to each other and the world around, and this has resulted in this intimate and delicate picture book. In The Memory of an Elephant, the talent of the young writer and Dutch Memory Champion Wessel Sandke inspired the ‘old master’ Jan Jutte. Together they created a charming picture book with a valuable lesson at the end. As a follow-up to their multi-award-winning Tangram Cat, Martijn van der Linden and his wife Maranke Rinck surprise us again with a beautiful picture book based on a well-known children’s game. But Lemniscaat is not only known for its outstanding picture books: we also publish prize-winning juvenile novels, many of which have gone on to become classics. Sjoerd Kuyper, for example, is nominated for the Premio Strega Ragazze e Ragazzi with his laugh out loud book, The Big L Hotel. And there is plenty more to discover in this catalogue; each book, a title to fall in love with. Jean Christophe Boele van Hensbroek Publisher Lemniscaat

Island

Watch the book trailer

Dive into an enchantingly watery world full of surprises Shipwreck! A father, daughter and their dog wash up on a small island. Little do the castaways know that the island isn’t what it seems at all. Island shows the family the wonders of life at sea. Colourful fish dart in the waves and birds swoop in the sky. Island life is full of the unexpected. Island protects the family against all kinds of dangers, from tropical storms to arctic snow. Menacing animals lurk underwater, too. Island has its own secret, too. Eventually, the family is rescued. And there’s a heart-warming surprise when the little girl says farewell to the large kind turtle – the real island – whose shell has provided the family with their happy island home. Island is a wordless picture book. Children are encouraged to study the wonderful illustrations and tell the story in their own words. Mark Janssen’s painterly illustrations come alive on the page. Sun hits the water and sparkles. Splashes of paint become shoals of fish. This is a charming picture book full of imagination.

You have to get happy looking at his sparkling and exciting fairy-tale worlds’ **** – nrc Handelsblad ‘Picture books that are made with love for children will usually also change the adults look at the world. ­Nothing Happened by Mark Janssen is one of those books.’ – Süddeutsche Zeitung

Dinos don’t Exist

Watch the book trailer

Warning! Unfold this book for scary dinosaur surprises!

Highlighted by the Dutch Foundation With his first picture book, Nothing Happened, Mark Janssen created quite a furore domestically and abroad. Now, in the same bold and sparkling style, Mark presents a new story. Two brothers set off on a pretend expedition to find dinosaurs. Of course, everyone knows dinos don’t exist, so there’s no need to be scared – or is there? The reader soon sees the brothers climb through rocks that are really dinosaur teeth and mountains that are sharp dinosaur horns. Then, as each page unfolds, the landscape reveals itself to be full of dinosaurs! Mark Janssen plays visual tricks with scale. He creates a world of bold colourful illustrations where nothing is quite what it seems. Watch out and look closer … that tree or hill might be a dinosaur, too.

Francis

Watch the book trailer

About a young man who ­believed in goodness – an ode to nature

Francis is a figure familiar to us all: the saint who conversed with animals. In his typically colourful, dreamy style, Piet Grobler turns Francis’s story into a book that is not only a joy to look at – and of course to read – but that also inspires the reader to make the world a better place. In its beauty and its message, this is a book that transcends all cultures and religions. Piet Grobler has felt a special bond with birds all his life. It happened several times that a bird suddenly landed on him, in each case followed by some special event in his life. Piet Grobler also feels a strong affinity with Saint Francis. So it’s no surprise that he should be the one to have made this book about Francis.

‘Line drawings and watercolours in full glory, filled with the funny, rebellious and cheerful little birds that characterise his work.’ – de Volkskrant ‘Piet Grobler plays a game with the conventional depictions of death … Complex reasoning is elaborated in humorous scenes.’ – De Standaard

An Elephant’s Memory

Watch the book trailer

The Memory Champion of the Netherlands shares his gift in a picture book

Donkey is giving a party, but then discovers with a fright that his larder is almost empty. No worries: he can just stroll down to Elephant’s shop to do some shopping. He makes a mental list of all he needs and sets off. Along the way he meets all sorts of friends who also need something from Elephant’s store, and of course Donkey promises to fetch those things for them. But by the time he arrives at the shop, he has forgotten the whole shopping list... So he quickly runs back to check with everyone what they needed – but again he has forgotten by the time he gets back to the shop. Fortunately, Elephant has a trick up his sleeve to help him remember. Wessel Sandtke is famous for having a memory like an elephant. He can remember incredible amounts of information – and everyone can, as long as you learn some tricks. With that in mind he wrote his first cheerful – and for many people, very recognisable – picture book story, which the three-time winner of the Golden Brush Award, Jan Jutte, was eager to turn into a feast for the eyes in his typically colourful style.

Wessel Sandtke is a psychology student at the Erasmus University Rotterdam and the current Dutch Memory Champion. An Elephant’s Memory is his first picture book.

Owlie Marble

Watch the book trailer

Playing at marbles has never been so much fun!

Everyone has played at marbles at some point. But did you know that every marble is in fact a personality? There’s Sun Ray and Zebra, Cat’s Eye and Shark, Flamingo, Moon and Milkshake, and lots of other smooth rolling friends. And now one more friend has joined the gang: it’s Owlie. Everyone wants to play with Owlie, but not with the monsters that are hot on their heels. The result is a jolly bouncy marble adventure – where do you hide if you’re a marble? In the marble run? In the marble jar? Or do you slip out the gates? Read along and play along! Because the book is itself a marble pot.

Owlie Marble is an extraordinary and fabulously designed book that uniquely combines reading, looking and playing.

19 Lemniscaat children’s literature writers

You and I. Stories about Friendship and Refugees

Because friendship transcends borders and cultures…

In the world today, some 22.5 million people have fled their homes, leaving behind all that is near and dear to them, because war, hunger, their political or cultural background, their sexual orientation or something else put their lives at risk. These people need a place: a place where they are safe, where they feel welcome, and where they can start to rebuild a new and normal life. The first step to a new life is making friends. In You and I, 19 juvenile literature authors show how friendship transcends all borders and cultures, ethnic origin and sexual orientation. And that refugees are welcome here. With outstanding contributions by Jan Terlouw, Gijs Wanders, Margaretha van Andel, Ariënne Bolt, Alyze Bos, Pieter Koolwijk, Jesse Goossens, Joyce Pool, Mireille Geus, Carolien Ceton, Anna van Praag, Jowi Schmitz, Peter-Paul Rauwerda, Ellen van Velzen, Lenneke Westera, Eva Moraal, Marloes Morshuis, Sjoerd Kuyper and Annet Huizing, ranging from poetry to autobiographical stories, and from historical events to science fiction. But with one thing in common: a warm heart for all those who have had to flee from home.

The Mice

When the mice pop up, life takes a surprising turn

‘That Wednesday I had to roll the garbage container to the street curb for collection. I hate doing that, it’s such a stinky thing. But I had to. So I grabbed it by the handle and pulled it away from the garden fence – and suddenly, there they were. Pressed against the lowest board of the fence – all eighty of them. The mice.’ One afternoon they suddenly appear: the mice. Which is odd enough as it is, but things get even stranger when they start talking to Fien... They don’t say much, just the words ‘San Francisco’ and ‘Peru’ – but that turns out to mark the start to a remarkable journey, all the way to America. The mice keep popping up along the way, appearing to give Fien instructions. Which land her deep in the jungle, along with her teacher – who looks suspiciously like a Native American Indian. With The Mice, Lenneke Westera has created a delightful adventure story: fantastic in every sense of the word. After turning the last page, you can’t wait to run into mice as well – you never know what will happen next!

Marloes Morshuis

The Shadows of Radovar

Jona and her parents, little brother and grandmother live in Starlight: one of the huge apartment buildings in Radovar. The inhabitants of this grey city have been subjected to a scoring system that determines your social position. Families who work hard enough earn extra points, which raises them to higher positions – literally. Those who score demerits end up as an Undergrounder, or worse, in an Underneighbourhood. Most of the people in Radovar have accepted the system. If you refuse to participate, your whole family will be condemned to misery. For that reason Jona keeps silent, but she avoids the Starlight life as much as possible. Her only friend is the unconventional caretaker Zalman, who lives deep underground. Then Jona is rudely confronted with the darker sides of Radovar. Grandma is forced to move to a building for elderly people, and the cleaners of the Grey Brigade turn out to do more than just sweep the streets. When Jona sneaks outside and meets the street urchin Kilian, she becomes involved with a resistance group who seeks to reveal Radovar’s true nature. Jona discovers that the shadows of the city hide more secrets than she ever realised before, and soon finds herself in great danger. Once again, Marloes Morshuis has created an intensely exciting and engaged juvenile novel that also casts today’s world in a different light.

Ellen van Velzen

Children of the Endless Plain A sweltering story about enemies, friendship and survival

When Sen, the son of the chief of the Harati tribe, is taken captive by the their arch enemies, the Barbarians, he fears his life is over. But the Kamarai tribe – as their actual name turns out to be – have something very different in mind: Sen is to take the place of the son of the Kamarai chief, who was killed by the Harati. However much Sen resists at first, he doesn’t have a choice. Gradually he discovers that the Barbarians, whom he had feared and despised all his life, are not at all the kind of people he thought they were. They also turn out to have very different ideas about life and leadership than the Harati tribe. Sen learns about mutual respect, about belonging to a group, and about living in harmony with nature. But surely he cannot betray his own people? Ellen van Velzen, author of the well-known book The Young Kitemaster, transports the reader to the hot and dusty African savannah, where life is hard but incredibly beautiful as well. Just like this book is incredibly beautiful. A touching story about family and pride, and seemingly irreconcilable differences. A novel about a world that is far away, and yet close by.

Ellen van Velzen works at the University of Potsdam, where she develops mathematical models of plankton dynamics. She combines her mathematical skills with a great love of stories. Her debut book The Young Kitemaster won a Flag and Pennant Award. Children of the Endless Expanse is her second juvenile novel.

The Penknife

A classic adventure story about the importance of friendship

Mees finds his best friend Tim’s new penknife in his own trouser pocket. But Tim has moved away and now Mees is afraid that people will think he stole it from him. Mees decides to give the knife back to Tim – but how to find him? Mees doesn’t know Tim’s new address... Suddenly, a marvellous plan pops up in his head. A plan so grand, that his head can hardly contain it. What follows is the kind of frolicking adventure that only master storyteller Sjoerd Kuyper can write. It’s no wonder that The Penknife has been one of the most popular children’s books for more than a quarter century. The film adaptation of The Penknife won two important Dutch film awards: the Cinekid Film Award and a Golden Calf for Best Director. And on top of that, it also won the prestigious Emmy Award for the best children’s programme. The Penknife is a timeless book, now published as a superb hardcover edition with spanking new illustrations by no one other than the Golden Brush Award-winning illustrator Alice Hoogstad.
