Hoorah! My copies of a great little book that I recently translated just arrived in the post this week, which is always exciting. It’s a Little Golden Book/Gouden Boekje from Uitgeverij Rubinstein, published in collaboration with the Rijksmuseum. The Girl in the Golden Dress, written by Jan Paul Schutten and illustrated by Martijn van der Linden, tells the story of the mysterious little girl at the centre of Rembrandt’s famous painting The Night Watch. Jan Paul’s imaginative and humorous take on the figures in the painting has made me see them in an entirely new light. It’s a beautifully illustrated book that will give young readers a really entertaining introduction to this important work of art.
