World of Viruses

May 2021 my new children’s book about viruses will be published. Of course the wonderful illustrations are made by Wendy Panders, who also illustrated the succesful Palm Trees at the North Pole (12 translations so far). All information in the book was checked by Dutch virologist and WHO member Marion Koopmans and her department of Viroscience.

World of Viruses is a comprehensive book about corona and other viruses. Therefore it will be relevant for years and years to come. It’s a book about scientists, runny noses, superspreaders, guinea pigs, vaccines, conspiracy theories, bats, pangolins and most of all: about humans. World of Viruses tells you all you need to know to understand pandemics and viruses.

Palm Trees at the North Pole

In August 2018 my children’s book about climate change was published in the Netherlands: Palmen op de Noordpool (Palm Trees at the North Pole). The book tells the whole story of climate change for children aged 10 and up: history, causes, effects, measures and myths. But all of course in a fun and quirky way, with lots of mammoths, volcanoes and steam engines. In the Netherlands the book got very good reviews, an honorary mention by the Dutch jury for the Golden Stylus and the Glass Globe for best geographical book for children. It has also won the Silver International Creative Media Award.
