Juvenile fiction

Evert Hartman

Evert Hartman, born in 1937 in Dedemsvaart, started his writing career with adventure novels for adults, but turned to writing children's books in 1978. His first book War Without Friends was an immediate success and was awarded the European Prize for Topical Juvenile Literature. The book tells the controversial story of a 14-year-old son of a collaborator during the Second World War. Hartman wants his readers to think for themselves and he therefore chooses controversial topics, exciting and well written. The books are still pop- ular with both youth and adults. Evert Hartman died in 1994.
