This is the third volume of 'comic poems': it's not an ordinary book of poetry, it's not a comic, but I wrote 22 poems and Floor made two-page-comics out of them.

- A first book full of 'comic-poetry' came out in 2008 and was called GRANDPA SHOWS HIS TOES. This book was awarded with the 'Zilveren Griffel', the Silver Slate, the offical 'best books of the year'. The second volume was made two years later and got an honoray mention for that same prize, and was awarded with the 'best comic book for youth': DRAGONS WITH PLUGS (2010).
