About the book
Nout en ik in de razende ruimte, illustrated by Aron Dijkstra, follows the adventures of two friends exploring a mysterious place called the Razende Ruimte (Frenzied Space). Through their journey, they discover the importance of diversity and inclusivity in everyday life.
‘Als jij nou hiervan af springt, dan vlieg je zo de Razende Ruimte in,’ zegt Nout. Hij klopt met zijn vlakke hand op de grote rots waarop ik sta.
‘De Razende Ruimte?’ vraag ik.
‘Ja! De Razende Ruimte!’ roept Nout. Hij spreidt zijn armen uit. ‘Daar kan alles, écht alles!’
Fleur Doornberg-Puglisi, a Dutch native, currently lives in Sweden with her husband and child, where she works as a library teacher at an international school. She believes that there is a perfect book for every child and is dedicated to helping them find it.
