Jip and Janneke
'Jip and Janneke' is a collection of children's books written by Annie M.G. Schmidt and beautifully illustrated by Fiep Westendorp. The short stories were first published in the Netherlands as a weekly newspaper series from 1952 to 1957, but proved so popular that they were soon bundled together in books. Today they are well loved classics, perfect for bed time reading as each story is only 250 words!
I had never heard of the title here in Australia, but in Amsterdam the illustrations were everywhere. The HEMA store even has it's own collection of Jip and Janneke products. Very cute!
