She was standing inside the secret garden."

Hoi Anna,

Deze tekeningen zijn prachtig!! Volgens mij heb ik een Engelstalig uitgave van The Secret Garden in de kast staan die door hem is geillustreed. Ik ga straks even kijken. Wat heb je trouwens een leuke nieuwe header!

Fijne zondag! Groeten, Madelief
