'Farmer Boris goes to Oma' is the eighth picture book in the successful series of Ted van Lieshout and Philip Hopman. In this part, Boris and his brother and sister go to Oma in The Hague to bring some fresh fruit.
To Oma in The Hague Farmer Boris and his sister Sam and brother Berend have picked a whole bunch of apples, pears and plums. Nice, but what should they do with so much fruit? 'We're going with it,' says Boris Boer, 'to Oma in The Hague. She bakes apples from pies, and from pears she makes juice, and from prunes she makes jam for rusks and porridge.' And so they go on the road, by train to The Hague. Once they have arrived Oma is not the sweet old lady that the reader had expected! 1
