Lovey and Dovey

A funny picture book with a positive message: try to make the best of every situation in all circumstances, no matter what. Lovey and Dovey are confined to a prison cell for stealing a pair of socks. Thanks to Dovey's clever- ness their grey and isolated surroundings become cheerful and happy. Until the dreadful day they are released.

The sympathy you are bound to feel for the thieves and the sur- prising ending make this an origi- nal picture book.

Rights sold to USA, Italy, Spain (& Catalan).

Reviews

"A winsome prison fable from the Netherlands.
...[C]hildren will respond to its daffy logic and celebrate along with the lovers."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Quirky, playful and altogether inviting."
-Publishers Weekly

"This offbeat story features a loving couple who share a jail cell in the "most dismal dungeon of Katakom" because they stole a pair of blue socks. ... Their unusual method of transforming their cell, along with this charming jailbird-pair's solution to the problem of their unwanted freedom, will have readers chuckling."
-School Library Journal
