The Problem of the Hot World


Five forest friends notice they are in trouble. Their world is too hot. Plants and bees are disappearing and their beautiful trees are dying. Bear, fox, deer, mole, and owl set off on an action-packed adventure as they look for a solution to the problem. While the solution they find helps them, is it the best way to deal with climate change? Use this book to start the discussion and help children understand the impacts of global warming.

It's been een while...

It's been a while since I posted on this blog. Lately I'm especially busy with making illustrations for children's stories.


Speaking of which, I just started a project where I’m looking for (amateur) writers.

I made a large number of illustrations. Illustrations of backgrounds, characters and objects. By combining the different images, everyone can create their own story. 
For details look at my website: www.blog.dickrink.nl
Please feel free to contact me anytime!

My kids asked me to make paintings for a childrensbook. Of course I cannot dissapoint them, so I started with these 5 paintings. Actually it is a nice thing to do for a change. So on with the next one!

The only problem will be the writing of a story... Volonteers can send me a mail.
