Huub Slabbers: children's books

My father Huub Slabbers, 1910-2002, was a multi-tasking artist.
Between 1955 and 1975 his main activity was writing and illustrating children’s
books for the international market. After ‘escaping’ school I was his assistent for several years and we worked together on illustration projects. When I look at the Peter and Pat series my flower power influences seem rather obvious.
