A Pond Full of Ink

A Pond Full of Ink

Elderly otters. Tree-dwelling suburbanites. Singing tea kettles. Walking furniture.

In the creative cosmos of beloved Dutch poet Annie M. G. Schmidt, anything is possible — and the more whimsical, the better. Her rollicking poems transform ordinary events and places into extraordinary adventures full of imagination.

Children and adults alike will delight over the new collection A Pond Full of Ink, which presents a choice selection of Schmidt’s most memorable verses, expertly translated by David Colmer and illustrated by Sieb Posthuma.
