Er lag een trommeltje in het gras/ There was a tin box laying in the grass.

The same tin box that granddad found at a flea market when he was a boy, was given to Lientje even longer ago, somewhere in a warm and faraway land. Granddad forgets all about the tin box. Who’s going to find it? In this picture book past and present mingle in a wonderful way. The childhood days of granddads and grandmas come tangibly close.

A story by Edward van de Vendel, will be published Fall 2020 by Querido.
