'Friends' with different cover

The Englisch translation of 'Vriendjes', called 'Friends', will get a different picture on the cover.
The French edition also has this picture.
Perhaps the next edition in Dutch will have the same cover.

We think it is better than the old one.

'Happy' foreign news

In Germany 'Happy' already has a fifth edition, in France a fourth and in Holland and the USA a third edition.

And we are going to develope several new translations in Asia.The book will be translated in Japanese, Tai, Vietnamese, Bahasa, Mandarin, Arabian and there will come a second english version for Australia.
For all the translations I'm going to draw the words myself. A very interesting project.
