Pluk had a small red crane cart. He drove through the whole city and searched for a house to live in. Occasionally he stopped. 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 Stampertjes, Mrs Helderder, Aagje and Zaza, but also with other animals like Dollie, Langhors and the Krullevaar he can do well.
On the top floor of a tower flat lives the boy Pluk. He is a wise guy, friendly and helpful to humans and animals, so he is often called on him. Zaza, a cockroach, lives in his room and the doll Dollie is his best friend, who "overflows" groceries when needed. The doctor, Mr. Pen, the bookstore, and the family Stampertje, they all have a place in his life. A wonderful story in which fantasy and reality are intertwined such that children will be happy to move around in this world and identify themselves with Pluk. The design of the illustrations supports the fantasy world, but also gives a clear picture of reality. The drawings are done in beautiful, harmonious colors. Reprinted, expanded with drawings made by Fiep Westendorp in 1982 and 1983 for the toddler 'Bobo'. Read from about 4 years, reading from 8 years.
