Thank you Marieke from Zuthpen, Netherlands
Marieke sent me this cute card of children's book illustration.
Jip and Jenneke was one Maireke's favourite books when she was a young girl.
Jip and Janneke is a series of children's books in the Netherlands, written by Annie M.G. Schmidt and illustrated by Fiep Westendorp. The series is known for its simplicity and wit.
Annie M.G. Schmidt is called the queen of Dutch children's literature. Her best-known work for children may be the series Jip and Janneke, for which she received the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 1988.
Fiep Westendorp was a Dutch illustrator who became especially popular due to her long-term collaboration with writer Annie M.G. Schmidt. Three generations of Dutch people have grown up with her illustrations.
Here is an other cute card illustrated by Fiep Westendorp.
