MANIE SCHAAFIJS  |  De reis van Manie Schaafijs, you can order it here.


A story about my great grandfather who traveled from Madeira to Brasil and Trinidad, hoping for a better future, and ended up in Suriname. Where he introduced shaved ice. An adventurous story for children from 10 years old but also nice to read for every age above 10 until adult.


Written by Zindzi Zevenbergen, layout design by Lyanne Tonk, and published by Uitgeverij De Harmonie.
