For years I've been adoring the work of artist Marleen Felius. Her work - main topic: cows and cattle - is known and valued all over the world. Her 'Cattle breeds encyclopedia' (text and images by Marleen) is a magnificent work of art and knowledge.
Finally we found a chance and the time to work together. The result of this is the sweet and lifelike LITTLE CALF, LITTLE FOAL. Which is out now!
This book has a very, very simple text, which talks about the first
hours and days of a newborn calf and those of a newborn foal. The
pictures show it all: the first drinking, the standing-up, the first
time they see the meadow. It's almost non-fictional (because, when
Marleen Felius is involved, you know that everything is true to life and
no mistakes are made!), but still a small story.
