Emilia lives in a lighthouse with her father. He has a wooden leg, drinks too much and makes his daughter do all the work. In the harbour town, everyone calls her Lampje, or ‘little lamp’. During a terrible storm, Lampje realises she’s forgotten to buy matches and so the lighthouse lamp remains unlit and a ship smashes into the rocks.
What makes Lampje particularly interesting is the way the novel incorporates the world-famous, tragic tale of the Little Mermaid. Everyone knows how she exchanged her beautiful voice for legs so that she could go and live with the man of her dreams. This story begins where the fairy tale ends.
 Lampje has everything it takes to become a classic.

The Dutch illustrator and children’s book author Annet Schaap was born in Ochten in 1965. She studied at an art school in Kampen and at the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten in The Hague. Between 1995 and 1999 she also attended the Schrijversvakschool ʼt Colofon in Amsterdam and worked for several years in youth theater. At that time she wrote a number of children’s plays, songs, and the libretto for a children’s opera.  She draws her pictures in pencil and then works them out in India ink or watercolor.

In 2017, Schaap made her debut as an author with the book »Lampje« (Eng. »Lampie and the Children of the Sea«, 2019).  For her debut as an author, Schaap was awarded the most important children’s book prizes in the Netherlands –  the Nienke van Hichtum Prize, the Woutertje Pieterse Prize, the Gouden Griffel, and the Flemish Boekenleeuw. Together with musician Fredrike de Winter, she also developed a storytelling performance of »Lampje«.
