Sea the World of Illustration

Part of Imagine Children's Festival

Dive into the stormy waves of Lampie and the Children of the Sea with a reading from the book and a drawing workshop for ages 8+.

In Annet Schaap’s prize-winning novel, Lampie the lighthouse keeper’s daughter meets with disaster one stormy night.

But soon she is drawn in to a world of mermaids and pirates, where she must fight for freedom, friendship and the right to be different.

After a live reading from the author, readers are invited to create their own illustrations in a workshop inspired by her enchanting creations.

Annet Schaap is one of the Netherlands' best-loved illustrators.

Lampie and the Children of the Sea is her debut novel and won four prizes in the Netherlands and Flanders, including the Gouden Griffel for the best Dutch children's book of the year.

This event is part of New Dutch Writing, presented by the Dutch Foundation for Literature.
