On June 16 the John Adams Institute is hosting an event especially for children, with the award-winning duo author Mac Barnett and illustrator Jon Klassen, who have successfully collaborated on several picturebooks, the trilogy Triangle, Square and Circle, as well as Extra Yarn, and Sam & Dave Dig a Hole.

Their most recent collaboration, picturebook The Wolf, the Duck, and the Mouse (published by Uitgeverij Gottmer as De wolf, de eend en de muis, and translated by award-winning children’s book author Edward van de Vendel) is a story about a duck and mouse who get swallowed by a wolf, and then decide to live in his belly. With a nod to traditional fables and a wink to the reader, Barnett and Klassen offer a tale of co-operation and creative cuisine.

During the event, which starts at 3pm, Barnett and Klassen will discuss their book and engage the children (ages 4 and up) in an interactive project. Spaces Herengracht is open for coffee, tea and cake starting at 2pm. After the event please feel free to enjoy a lemonade or a drink with us.

Tickets are € 5,-, you can buy them on the website of the John Adams Institute.
