About this book

Die Dingesfabriek: Jannus en Kriek op die maan | Children's Fiction

Elizabeth Wasserman


Jannus and Kriek are twins and about 8 years old. They live with their parents, Knersius and Soetlief Knoets, in Huis Deurmekruis, below exit 7 of the big freeway into the city. Apart from Jannus and Kriek, the most important character in the book is their eccentric Granpa, which they get to know a little better in this first story. He lives in a basement laboratory under Huis Deurmekruis, where he does experiments and works on new inventions.

But his brain is so busy thinking up new things, or perhaps it is just because he is getting on in years, but he calls all complicated things “dinges”. In this book he takes Jannus and Kriek to the moon and back, before their mum has even realised they’re gone!
