Spurting Arteries & Flooding Oceans
Jesse Goossens & Linde Faas
Trim size: : 21 x 25 cm | 96 pages
Everyone knows about the Red Cross and the life-saving work this organization carries out worldwide. But what can you do yourself, at home or in your own neighbourhood, when disaster strikes?
Jesse Goossens has written a manual dealing with thirty-four disasters large and small, for everyone aged nine and up, and she’s collected funny, gruesome and wonderful facts about every possible catastrophe. Because do you know how many bones you can break? How to resuscitate someone? How to tell a forest fire is coming, or how much blood your body’s got in it? And what was the biggest earthquake ever?
Linde Faas has taken these facts and brought them together to create a sparkling, joyful whole, a book that’s a pleasure to leaf through as well as an essential reference work for all children, young and old, who want to help make the world a better place.
Jesse Goossens (1969) is co-publisher and editor at Lemniscaat, but first and foremost a writer. Her work includes travel novels, works on theatre, a young adult novel, several interview collections on topics of social justice, and books about weird fun facts.
LINDE FAAS graduated cum laude from the Breda art academy. She works as an animator of cartoons, and internationally as an illustrator.
For Lemniscaat she illustrated, among others, the books by Pieter Koolwijk about Flea and Spikey and Goo, and the non-fiction titles Cola Fountains and Splashing Paint Bombs and Spurting Arteries and flooded Oceans with Jesse Goossens. After her picture book debut Come with me in 2018, The Boy and the Whale was published.
