Do you like adventure?
Do you like mystery?
If yes, then you might just like the book my husband and I are reading called:
“De brief voor de Koning“
That’s the title in it’s native Dutch!
In English it’s called “The Letter for the King.”
I first came across this book while visiting Harvard University.
I was sitting in a quaint little lounge when I saw Harvard’s eponymous magazine laying on the coffee table, laying there, looking interesting.
And so, since anytime is a good time to read, I picked it up. And then, lo and behold…an article about a new translation of a classic children’s book:
I’d never even heard of this book.
I was intrigued.
Coming of age?
In our family…well, really in our date life: we’ve gotten into the habit of my husband reading books aloud to us. It’s…wonderful.
He has an amazingly sexy voice and it’s just fun! It’s something we can do together, plus I can draw or sculpt or make dolls while he reads. It’s just…a really cool thing.
I’ll write a post on how we started having reading dates.
And if you’re interested in reading this book with us (we’re on chapter 1 of part 3) check out your local library, bookstore, or amazon.com.
You can click the picture below to read an excerpt and to learn more about the book, author, and translator. But beware: once you’ve started a great book, it’s really hard to put down 🙂
p.s. If you see words, posters, or links in my post, those are things that I’ve handpicked and put in my blog especially for you. They lead to more information and if you like, you can buy what is featured; it’s usually a book, an online movie rental, or a cool product.
