The International Youth Library in Munich has selected Het meisje en de soldaat (The Girl and the Soldier) as White Raven 2014. Each year the IYL selects books that “inspire and provoke, set new trends, and are of the highest quality in terms of language, content and artistry”. 200 titles from around the world were selected. The Girl and the Soldier was one of ten Dutch nominations. The White Ravens will be exhibited at the Bologna Book Fair and other places around the world.
