List it tuesday

Books of my childhood.
My favorite is Pluk van de Petteflet by Annie MG Schmidt. It's not translated to english, but it is in german (Pluk mit dem Kranwagen).

It's about a boy named Pluk who drives a truck and lives at the top of an appartment. In this appartment already lives a cockroach and they become friends. Plak has a lot of friends in the building, but there are also a few people that are not so friendly. They have all sorts of adventures and the characters are very funny, cause they are all a little strange.

The writer, Annie MG Schmidt,is very famous in Holland. Her books are known by almost all children and a lot of them are used for movie and television. She knew how to create funny characters, they are all over the top and brilliant.
Those stories combined with the drawings of Fiep Westendorp bring back memories of my childhood. I still get very happy when I see them.
