Award Winning Picture bookThe colourful picture book Bang! by Leo Timmers was awarded the Boekenpauw 2012, the prize for the best illustrated children’s book in Flanders. The jury stated: “The story’s slapstick and the cheerful colours of the illustrations form a very attractive combination. It is very impressive to see how with the use of few words he manages to create a funny story that is filled with movement, and even a flicker of romance. The resulting happy chaos is perfect for the age group.” The French (Editions Milan) German (Coppenrath Verlag), Danish and Swedish (Turbine Forlaget) for Bang! have been sold.
