By Mies van Hout
Protea Boekhuis, 2015
A near-wordless picture book for young children from 3-6 with brightly coloured monsters who are real friends – they play, laugh and cuddle, but they also tease, argue and make up. The dynamic illustrations and words is drawn by the well-known children’s book illustrator Mies van Hout, by using oil pastel and wax crayon on a black background in her characteristic expressive style. It portrays situations recognizable for small monsters and links with Friends, the translation of Vriendjes, also by Mies van Hout, published by Protea Book house in 2015.
