Yakanuko

5 years ago, writer Curt Fortin and illustrator Nick van Leent started working on a children’s book titled ‘Yakanuko – Een gevaarlijke opdracht’ (a dangerous mission). It is aimed specifically at boys aged 8-12. As the photos suggest, the two had created a large amount of imagery and texts over the years which have come together in a single, high quality book full of detailed prints.

With their debut novel they won the Hotze de Roosprijs in June 2015. In 2016 a theatre-show based on the book will follow.
