Pluk had a small red crane cart. He drove through the whole city and searched for a house to live in. He stopped occasionally. And then he asked the people: 'Do not you know a house for me?'
Eventually he finds something: the turret of the Petteflet. There he gets acquainted with the Stampers, Mrs. Helderder, Aagje and Zaza, but also with other animals such as Dollie, Langhors and the Curly he can agree.
The boy Pluk lives on the top floor of a tower block. He is a wise fellow, friendly and helpful to people and animals, that is why he is often called upon. Zaza, a cockroach, lives in his little room and the Dove Dollie is his best friend, who 'flatters' messages when needed. The doctor, Mr. Pen, the bookseller, and the Stamper family, they all have a place in his life. A wonderful story in which fantasy and reality are so interwoven that children will happily move around in this world and identify with Pluk. The design of the illustrations supports the fantasy world, but also gives a clear picture of reality. The drawings are executed in beautiful, harmonious colors. Reprint, extended with drawings made by Fiep Westendorp in 1982 and 1983 for the nursery magazine 'Bobo'. Reading from approx. 4 years, read from approx. 8 years.
