Annie M.G. Schmidt

I have been looking for books by Annie M.G. Schmidt, but I can only find English translations of her Childrens books. Does anyone know of a site that carries the books in Dutch, on an english website?

Do you mean a website in English where you can buy original (Dutch) books of Annie M.G. Schmidt?

I found http://www.annie-mg.com/huiskamer/annie ... oeken.html. If you click on the book title, you can see the ISBN number. I am sure you must be able to find a bookshop online or in your city where they can order it for you.

You can probably buy them on bol.com (Dutch internet store) or proxis.be (Belgian internet store). Both of those should deliver world-wide, though not at cheap rates...

I think these are english translations, too. The website has a few samples from the books and they're all in english :(
