Catch up with Axel Graafland

January 21, 2015

Any domestic scene, however ordinary, becomes interesting when you look at it with an original view. This is what makes Axel Graafland’s life so exiting. From cruel boys who inflate a midwife toad, to the outrageous Reverend Uncle Peer and his mother’s disastrous attempts at trying to drive a car.

The Axel stories are written by Pieter Thomassen in Dutch and translated by Holland Park Press in collaboration with the author. Uniquely, each story is available in Dutch and English.

What’s more you can read all instalments online. Let us know on if you would like an email reminder when we add a new instalment.

Happy reading!
