About the Author

I'm Anita Bijsterbosch. I was born in 1961 in The Netherlands. My entire life, I have loved reading. As a child, I could spend hours thumbing through books, looking at the pictures and hoping I could one day make such beautiful illustrations myself. I studied the images down to the smallest detail and made up my own little stories to go along with them.
After high school, I took drawing and painting lessons in small galleries in my neighborhood. And I learned a lot from drawing and painting books. But I also mastered many techniques simply by experimenting with them on my own.
When my children were still young, I read them a bedtime story every night. I rediscovered that some picture books are real pieces of art. That's when I got the ambition to make my very own picture books.
I was remarked by the jury of the Key Colours International Illustrators Award 2012. The book Whose Hat is That? was published by Clavis Publishing and every book I have made since has been even more successful.


"When a sea horse father loses one of his 10 babies, readers can help search for them by lifting large flaps shaped like sea creatures, rocks, seaweed, and other underwater features....Repeating counting language helps drive home the concept, and the bold colors and chunky shapes of Bijsterbosch's artwork make a strong visual impact." - Publishers Weekly

"Young children are going to enjoy this counting adventure. With an engaging narrative, colorful artwork, and flaps to lift on every page, this is a book that will entertain again and again, and the surprising ending is sure to bring a smile to little faces." - Through the Looking Glass

"Readers will enjoy this underwater counting romp, and its generous size and engaging art make it perfect for toddler story time." - School Library Journal

"The books featured represent some of the best of imagination and fun in children's literature and are presented for reading and listening enjoyment. Kids will love opening the flaps and counting the missing babies." - The Storytellers, newsletter from The Children's Hour

"Will provide interactive fun for pre-schoolers and toddlers alike." -- Good Reads with Ronna, Best Children's Books for Father's Day
