For over a hundred years Ploegsma has been part of the Dutch publishing scene. The publishing house was founded in 1905 by Johannes Ploegsma and specialises in children’s books since the 1960’s: adventurous, humorous and non-fiction books for children of all ages. These include quite a lot of classic titles, like the books of Astrid Lindgren (Pippi Longstocking) and Arnold Lobel (Frog and Toad), as well as books by contemporary and very popular authors like Mirjam Oldenhave (Teacher Tom), Marjon Hoffman (Flora), Yvon Jaspers (Tess and Tommy), Reggie Naus (The Pirates Next Door), Danielle Bakhuis, Vivian den Hollander, Janny van der Molen and Caja Cazemier. Many of these authors have been translated.
Even though a lot has changed in the last hundred years, Ploegsma’s love for beautiful books is still going strong. For more information about our titles or a possible collaboration please contact us.
