About the Author

van Reek went to art school, which was way too easy, so he changed to mathematics, but that was too hard, so he changed back to art. After art school, he created an animated cartoon series for TV, introducing Keepvogel (Coppernickel in English) and Tungsten. So far, Wouter has created about six books based on these characters. van Reek went to art school, which was way too easy, so he changed to mathematics, but that was too hard, so he changed back to art.

Reviews

"The illustrations are humorous and dare I say, inventive? The ever-growing invention of Coppernickel is very detailed, contrasting nicely with the rough style that the characters and setting are drawn in. The text is equally successful, using short sentences that allow the illustrations themselves to tell most of the story. A great book about imagination and inventions." - Kids Lit

"The eclectic mix of visual simplicity and detail combined with straightforward text result in a timeless tale of imagination and friendship that children will be drawn to and enjoy again and again." - School Library Journal

"This is a very delightful picture book, especially for the creative mind that is detail oriented." - Jan the Book Lady

"A simple and charming tale about not losing the crux of a bright idea amid excessive details, and a secondary message about how much fun it is to experience the outdoors." - Midwest Book Review
