Youp van ’t Hek: “It was Christmas morning 1961, I remember it so well, my rabbit hutch was empty, and mother told me not to come into the barn, and if I went to play nice, I would get something sweet.”

Thomas Rap: “The unforgettable Christmas classic by Youp van ’t Hek about a bunny who goes missing and his poor young owner sees him again on a silver platter for Christmas. The song, which has now settled in the collective memory of the whole of the Netherlands, is now being portrayed for the first time by one of the most beloved illustrators in the Netherlands.”
