About this book

Die Dingesfabriek: Jannus en Kriek onder die see | Children's Fiction

Elizabeth Wasserman


Jannus and Kriek are twins and they are eight years old. They live with their parents, Knersius and Soetlief Knoets, in Huis Deurmekruis below Exit 7 of the big freeway into the city.

Their eccentric Granpa, who lives in a basement laboratory under Huis Deurmekruis, took them to the moon in the first book, Jannus en Kriek op die maan. Now they are taken deep down into the Southern Atlantic Ocean, where Grandpa goes to study a mysterious oversized egg.

This part of the ocean is a scary, dark place where yeti crabs and strange fluorescent fish lurk. And there’s more danger in store: they soon realise the egg’s shell has started to crack . . . This can only mean one thing: whatever’s inside is ready to hatch, and its parents will surely come looking for it!
