Jonas and the Sea

By Marlies van der Wel
Rubenstein, 2017

For as long as he can remember, Jonas has had only one wish: to live underwater, like a fish. Everybody tells him people belong on land, not in the water. But Jonas won’t let that stop him: he spends his life building ever more complex machines that allow him to live underwater from the things he finds on the beach. People make fun of him. Finally, when he is 80 years old, a terrible storm hits the shore. All the land floods and people have nowhere to live. But Jonas has been preparing for this moment for his whole life: he lowers his machine in the water and he is finally home.

Jonas and the Sea is a beautiful, evocative picture book about belonging. It touches upon themes like climate change, consumerism, and coming of age, but most of all: staying true to yourself.

Dear Past Me
(You will Pay for This)

By Andrijana Grgičević and Melvin
Ibis grafika, 2024

What starts of as a humorous letter-writing exercise that can be attributed to childlike naïveté, turns through each letter into a processing tool for a child going through a traumatic experience and having no one to turn to, or at least feeling like he has no one to turn to. The author masterfully coincides the two opposing themes—the humour in the writing with the tragedy of events—to create a novel of rare sensibility that can be read and enjoyed by both children and adults.
