In "The Book of Life" Floortje Zwigtman and Sassafras De Bruyn take a light-hearted look at everything to do with having a baby: trying to get pregnant, the pregnancy itself, giving birth and raising the child. Citing facts and legends from around the world, they show that wherever you go having a child is an event that gives rise to stories. The illustrations by De Bruyn lend the book a very distinctive character, with a colour palette and figures that are reminiscent of Bruegel the Elder. The fat babies and marvellous facial expressions bring the text beautifully to life. Funny, lively and brimming with both facts and fiction, this book is one of a kind.
