Simon Van der Geest

Simon van der Geest (b. 1978) is one of the most remarkable new writers of children’s books in the Netherlands. With only his second children’s book, 'Dissus', Van der Geest won the most important Dutch children’s book prize, the Gouden Griffel, and by then film rights to his debut, 'Yellow Grass', had already been sold. Van der Geest also writes for the theatre.
