Almost everyone in the Netherlands grew up with Annie M.G. Schmidt’s bold and brassy kids. They’ve now provided the perfect inspiration for the Children’s Book Museum’s new, interactive exhibition.
Annie M.G. Schmidt’s Bold and Brassy Kids gives you the chance to experience a weird and wonderful adventure in the rebellious world of Annie M.G. Schmidt, the queen of Dutch children’s literature. There are all kinds of things to see and do. Step into Abel’s lift for a thrilling journey, make a cat vlog with Minou or build the most beautiful poems on the Poem Building Site. Listen to Schmidt’s greatest hits on Annie FM. And get messy with Scrumple’s word mixer and the letter vermicelli – but make sure the soup for Scrumple’s sick mum doesn’t explode...
Like Schmidt’s work, Annie M.G. Schmidt’s Bold and Brassy Kids is full of surprises, humour and word play. A delight for young and old!

What a delight. My four-year-old had such a wonderful time upstairs. I toured the downstairs area alone, which is for older children and adults, and had a smile on my face.
