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 the censored bits were never changed back, so this may be the first time you read the original version.
