Over the last 20 years, author Thijs Goverde has written nineteen childrens books, te best known of which are the Donderkat- (Thundercat) and the Meesterdief- (Master Thief) series.
His latest effort, a series of books about Yorick the Ork, contains stories in the classical fantasy genre. These stories come to life, not just in the books, but also in the woods: they provide the setting for a series of LARP-events, the plot of which was also written bij Goverde.
Once upon a time, he was part of the comedy duo Vreemd Apparaatje (Strange Little Apparatus), and in an even more distant past he gained an M.A. in philosophy. His books still contain both jokes and food-for-thought, though his imagination is always the main ingredient.
It is his ambition to write childrens books that grown-ups can enjoy for the jokes, and layers of meaning, that will go completely unnoticed by every childs eye.
