A Pond Full of Ink

Annie M.G. Schmidt is a household name in the Netherlands, where almost everyone can sing at least one of her songs or recite a couple of lines of her poetry. The jury of the Hans Christian Andersen Award, which she won in 1988, praised her for her ‘ironic tone, witty criticism and a style that is amusing, clear, rebellious and simple to its essence’.

David Colmer has produced sparkling new translations for this collection of her most iconic children’s poems, A Pond Full of Ink. Illustrator Sieb Posthuma presents his own colourful take on Schmidt’s universe, and Irma Boom’s design turns it all into a dazzling whole.
