Wie is Rintje?...
Rintje is een beroemde Nederlander...een hondje uit een series van boeken voor kinderen. Onze buurman, Sieb Posthuma, is schrijver en illustrator van deze boeken.
Remember our friend Rintje who came for a visit last weekend? As it turns out, we had one of Holland's biggest and brightest stars right in our VERY HOME!
Sieb Posthuma - one of his owners - is an extremely talented man who has written and illustrated a popular series of children's books about (you guessed it!)...RINTJE! Our famous house guest. Check out the unauthorized photo of Rintje below to catch a glimpse.
(NOTE: Rintje's publicist wanted to make clear that Rintje has no long-term intentions to continue public displays of affection for Dave. It was merely a gesture of kindness and good cheer. No further comment.)
For those of you across the Pond, there is an American version of the original book ("Rintje") called "Benny."
Great books! SO sweet!
Kids from (especially between the ages of 4 to 8) would LOVE these books.
Getting to know Sieb, Toon, and Rintje has been a wonderful unexpected treat.
