Translation ‘Das Neinhorn’

Almost everyone did something during the lockdown months that they didn’t get around to before. Jaap translated the picture book ‘Das Neinhorn’ (The No-corn) – by German author Marc-Uwe Kling and illustrator Astrid Henn – into Dutch. It’s a book that cannot be compared to any other picture book and is bound to put a smile on your face.

The book sold over 100,000 copies in Germany and in the Netherlands the book is also making quite a splash. In three months more than 10.000 copies have been sold.

‘An exceptionally humorous picture book. Jaap Robben has made a magnificent translation.’ Friesch Dagblad
