Illustrations by Christine Duvernois
The books are written by Hennie Jacobs, who became bilingual virtually overnight at the age of six as a Dutch immigrant to Montreal. An advertising copywriter, Hennie teaches English as a second language, to both business people and children, in a playful, fun, and non-threatening way. Since launching the Betty & Cat books in 2011, they’ve expanded to include three Dutch/English versions, three French/English versions, and now, two Spanish versions: Spanish/English and Spanish/French.
Christine studied at l’École des Arts Appliqués in Lyon. She worked for several years as a textile designer. For the last 15 years, Christine has been working freelance as a graphic artist, primarily in the fields of tourism, the environment, and education. Playing with brushes, paints, and paper – and the latest digital design tools – Christine’s illustrations are exactly the look I wanted for Betty & Cat. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Betty & Cat books are published in The Netherlands.
