Four new books in simple Dutch from Wablieft


Wablieft, the publisher of a weekly newspaper and books in straightforward Dutch, perfect for learners of the language, has just published four new books


Wablieft, the centre for easy-to-read Dutch, has just released four new books in its trademark simple, straightforward language. Wablieft launched its weekly newspaper more than 30 years ago for those with literacy problems. Now the paper and its series of books are also read by young people and Dutch-language learners for their accessible language.

The new books were written specifically for Wablieft and include Johnny Stalker by Diane Broeckhoven, whose new book De poppendokter (The Doll Doctor) is also now in bookstores. Johnny Stalker is about a lonely man of 40 who has a chance meeting with one of his TV idols.

The other books are Verloren in je hoofd: Leven met dementie (Lost in Your Head: Life with Dementia) by journalist Nathalie Carpentier, Jelle by young adult author Gil vander Heyden and De taart van Tamid (Tamid’s Cake) by teacher Ria Massy, who was inspired to write the book based on stories she heard from her students.
