The Treasures’ Game
illustrations Jan Limpens
Highly recommended reading (FNLIJ)
The daily lives’ problems of two teenagers who study in the same school and they got fairly different points of view about the world. Marinês is modern, aiming to live life with spontaneity. Olga is the whole model of a perky, posh girl. The illustrator is also a comic designer, used only black and white in his drawings and portrayed with a lot of acute features the characters. The book attracts the young reader by the friendly language, contemporary thematic and the verbal and visual modern tones.
