About the Author
David Vlietstra is a teacher at primary and secondary school. Because in the first classes his pupils had had female teachers all the time, every day at least 17 times some of the kids call him 'miss'. That's why he thought it was the time there should be a sturdy master in the primary grade .... Mister Whisker, the main character in his first book, is such a teacher. He has humor, he is impulsive and he likes naughty tricks. Together with the pupils, they take part in a contest organized by the local grocery shop. They might win a trip to an amusement park. For children a little bit older David Vlietstra wrote Willy Boom, a story full of suspense about the 10-year-old Willy. He has to travel through the Wild West to deliver a precious secret to his sister Hocus pocus penguin is his third children's book.
