Wat een leuk boekje! Ik ga binnenkort naar Australië en dit is een superleuk kado om aan vrienden te geven die geen Nederlands spreken/lezen. Alle typisch Hollandse dingen komen er in voor, de tekeningen zijn duidelijk, grappig en niet zoetsappig, de teksten zijn kort en bondig. Knap vind ik het dat het natuurlijk toch cliché's zijn maar dat Preiss in dit boekje de cliché's toch weet te overstijgen door de speelsheid (de tulpenluchtballon bijv.) van tekst en tekening
