Book: De toekomst daar komt geen eind aan! ( In Dutch)( Pepijn)

In 2007 Don Croonenberg and I talked to more than 600 children (10-14 years old) throughout almost the whole of the Netherlands about the current and future ‘state of the world’ and the Netherlands in particular. This was followed by stories written by the children themselves, sixty of which can be found in this striking book, supplemented by about two hundred pointed, witty, often disturbing one-liners of the children.  It also contains contributions from the ministers at the time, Ronald Plasterk and Andre Rouvoet, former Unicef director Henk Franken, Kees Paling of the Sociaal-Cultureel Planbureau and Bamber Delver, director of Stichting Kinderconsument.

Let’s believe the children for another year, with the risk that they will discover in an annoying way that the Sint …?  Or are we going to tell them? But when and how? This book offers a solution. Sophie, girl of eight, is going to investigate. How is it possible that some children get big gifts and others little or nothing? Where does Sint get all that money from? Why are the white horses from the equestrian center all gone around St. Nicholas’ time? How many house keys does Black Pete have? Sofie asks her friends for help, asks her parents difficult questions, looks on the internet, bakes peppernuts with both her brothers, and searches the whole house for clues and answers. One evening she makes a strange discovery…
