Monster Lake

Winner Leipziger Lesekompass 2024 (DE)
Longlisted for the BOON Literary Prize 2024 (BE)

Four ducks go to the big lake for the first time. Erik is feeling a bit nervous. He’s heard that a scary monster lives in the water. But his friends don’t believe a word of it!

‘The tremendously expressive illustrations offer a real deep dive into a meaningful story.’ Jury Leipziger Lesekompass

‘Timmers makes Monster Lake another splendid spectacle, full of engaging details. He elicits many a smile while cleverly and subtly conveying to children how peer pressure works — but also how to overcome your fears. Go for it and don’t look back — or better yet, look danger in the eye? Monster Lake also contains several stunning fold-out pages.’ – De Morgen
