The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83¼ Years Old (Hendrik Groen #1) by Hendrik Groen

Translated by: Hester Velmans I picked this book up because I saw this great review by Yvonne @ It's all about books. It tipped me in favour of reserving the book immediately instead of later and luckily it was available at the library. I have seen other reviews of this in passing over the last few… Continue reading The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83¼ Years Old (Hendrik Groen #1) by Hendrik Groen

I saw this great review @HappyTonic and since I have pre-approval from the publishers, I decided to give it a shot. I am always ready to try books for kids and have read a few non-fiction recently.
