Witteman Boreas ed zeven zeeen alt vs 1On BOREAS EN DE ZEVEN ZEEëN / BOREAS AND THE SEVEN SEAS

‘Boreas’s story is informative and thrilling and makes you forget at which beach you are. You experience the waves and the wind as if you are there, and you feel Boreas’ doubts after he starts seeing the fun part of traveling. Action, drama, bantering and mortal fear. It’s all in there. And breathlessness, but that’s mainly with the reader. Because you want to read this book in one go.
It doesn’t matter whether or not you like sailing or traveling, if you’re a boy or a girl, a man or a woman. No one will regret choosing this book.’
Nelly Hofman – Boekenbijlage.nl

 

‘Great about this book is the adventurous voice. The lapping of waves, the nightly tingling of boats in a port, the panic at sea when the wind hurls the boat to a broach. It’s like you are there and feel the wind pull your hair.’
Annemarie Terhell – Kidsweek, 4 out of 5 stars

SCAN0173On DE ZONNEGOD / THE SUN SPIRIT 

‘It’s obvious that Mina Witteman traveled Arizona, New Mexico and Navajo Nation before writing this book. The vivid picture she paints makes you feel like you are traveling there yourself and makes you appreciate the magic of native America.
Ineke van Nispen, Plantage Books & More, 4 out of 5 stars (on THE SUN SPIRIT)
