Harmen Van Straaten

Harmen van Straaten always loved to draw, but as a young adult, felt pressured into pursuing a career in law. After working briefly as a lawyer (and not enjoying it), he started to write childrens books, and has since written and illustrated over 200 books which have been published in Holland, Belgium, Germany, Great Britain, and now the United States as well. Ducks Tale is his first book for North-South Books Inc. Harmen van Straaten lives in Holland.
