Der niederländische Autor Guus Kuijer hat den renommierten Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, den weltweit bedeutendsten Literaturpreis auf dem Gebiet der Kinder- und Jugendliteratur, erhalten.
Zitat aus der Selbstbeschreibung des Astrid Lindgren Memorial Awards:
„The Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award (ALMA) is the world’s largest prize for children’s and young adult literature. The award, which amounts to SEK 5 million, is awarded annually to a single recipient or to several. Authors, illustrators, oral storytellers and those active in reading promotion may be rewarded. The award is designed to promote interest in children’s and young adult literature, and in children’s rights, globally. An expert jury selects the winners from candidates nominated by institutions and organisations worldwide. The Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award is administered by the Swedish Arts Council, and was founded by the Swedish government in 2002.“
