I really want to share this beautiful picture book with you, so I'm hoping my first attempt at embedding a YouTube Video works! It looks OK to me but please let me know if you can’t get it to play.
My lovely friend Nicole de Cock provided the illustrations, and the music is by Martin Nijdam. The video is based on the story of Bout and Moertje (Scram the donkey and Screwy the mouse). It tells the story of the friendship between them – a friendship which sometimes seems out of balance, Screwy being the caring type and Scram the good-for-nothing. It teaches us that the quality of a friendship cannot be weighed and that giving can be just as rewarding as taking.
