jip.gifBig, big news! Jip and Janneke is finally available again in English! A new translation has been released by Dutch publishing house Querido, and it has been very nicely done, with the original drawings by Fiep Westendorp. I always thought it would be difficult to convert such simple language into English and still keep the stories’ freshness and character; David Colmer has done a great job on the first volume. I hope there will be more!
