Tjibbe Veldkamp (b. 1962) has written both for the very youngest readers and for young adults, and everything he writes is well worth reading. He studied psychology in Groningen and then started writing for children. Even his most serious work has always remained fresh and direct, perhaps in part because he also writes for the weekly Donald Duck comic. He worked with Kees de Boer to create the hilarious Agent en Boef (Cop and Robber) series. For teens and older readers, he wrote the incisive SMS, the gritty Tiffany Dop, the nerdy book for high-school boys De lachaanval (The Laughing Attack) and the thriller De lovebus (The Love Bus).
