Nijlpaard voor Kerstmis

About the Book

'Brul is een nijlpaard, of nee, een mininijlpaard! Hij is de pluchen knuffel van een jongen van twaalf jaar die vecht tegen Osteosarcoom.'

Zo begon het tekstje waarmee in 2008 een actie in gang werd getrokken om het peterschap van nijlpaard Hermien als kerstcadeau te schenken aan Inigo en zijn knuffel Brul. In “Nijlpaard voor Kerstmis” vertelt een vader over het jaar dat zijn zoon kanker had en welke impact dat had op het hele gezin. Ondanks de ellende van 18 chemokuren en een zware operatie, is het een verhaal geworden met veel humor en een happy end.
