De Zoon van Dik Trom

by C. Joh. Kieviet

Dik Trom's dad keeps repeating about his grand-son as he did about his son: "He is a special child--and that he is". Obviously, master Kieviet was trying to get the laughs of his pupils with this running joke of the first book, and that grates a little.

Other than that, this is a fine book in the classic Dik Trom series, full of adventures.

Interestingly, this book was censored by the Nazis during the occupation of the Netherlands, and according to http://www.xs4all.nl/~jikje/Verbod/Boeken/trom.html the censored bits were never changed back, so this may be the first time you read the original version.

Author of the Day

Carrie Doyle
Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
