A year later, this was followed by a sequel, and he collaborated with his wife, illustrator Yvonne Lacet, to create the picture book Hier zijn draken, which has been published in Spanish, Korean and Italian. He won the Gouden Griffel for the best children’s book of the year 2022 for Films die nergens draaien (Movies Showing Nowhere), a bold and imaginative story that also transcends time and space.
