    • Bang!
      Award Winning Picture book

      The colourful picture book Bang! by Leo Timmers was awarded the Boekenpauw 2012, the prize for the best illustrated children’s book in Flanders. The jury stated: “The story’s slapstick and the cheerful colours of the illustrations form a very attractive combination. It is very impressive to see how with the use of few words he manages to create a funny story that is filled with movement, and even a flicker of romance. The resulting happy chaos is perfect for the age group.” The French (Editions Milan) German (Coppenrath Verlag), Danish and Swedish (Turbine Forlaget) for Bang! have been sold.

    Mister René

    • Mister René

      An Artistic Picture Book

      Mister René’s paintings are so good that they almost appear real. But no one seems to pay them any attention. Until a strange man offers to make everything that Mister René paints come to life. First there’s the painting of the apple, which Mister René can now eat, then there’s a huge hamburger, a new car, a cruise liner… Mister René paints himself a life of luxury – until Rose comes to ask if she can buy one of his paintings. But he doesn’t have any real paintings left! The spell must be broken – and soon! A book containing subtle references to the work of Belgian surrealist René Magritte, and full of clever and amusing details.




    • Crow
      A Picture Book

      Crow is very different from the other birds around him, and is more often than not made fun of by them. So Crow devises a plan to fit in by painting his black feathers multicolored in order to look more like the other birds, but the plan backfires and he ends up scaring everyone away. This tale shows young children the importance of acceptance and the detriments of prejudice.
