Annemarie van Haeringen

Annemarie van Haeringen

Life and work

Annemarie van Haeringen (born in 1959) has illustrated many children’s books, winning the top Dutch prize for illustrators three times. Working mainly in ink and watercolors, she lets the outlines run to suggest action and speed. For Little Donkey and Jakkie’s Birthday she won the 2003 Austrian Children’s and Young Adult Book Prize. Van Haeringen is known for her bold use of color. Her own picture books are often based on fables. The Princess With the Long Hair, an entirely imaginary story, was awarded the most important Dutch prize for illustrators, the Golden Paintbrush, in 2000. She won the same prize the year before, with Malmok, and again in 2005 for Bear is on Butterfly. In 2003 she was awarded the Silver Slate Pencil for The Beginning of the Sea.

Beer is op Vlinder

This is a beautiful and small love story. Bear falls in love with Butterfly who is very pretty. Bear tries to tell Butterfly how much he loves her. But Butterfly can not understand what Bear is talking about.
