The bv of the rights of Annie M.G. Schmidt is called Wombat bv. Why this name?

Because Annie’s son, Flip van Duijn, once asked his mother: “Isn't wombat a nice name for you, for instance? You know, such a cute marsupial. ” “Mmmm ...”, said Annie, “you mean I can put the money I earn with my books in that pouch?” She took a drag on her cigarette, a sip of her white wine, bounced up enthusiastically and said, “Yes! That is a good idea!” Since November 2, 1983, Wombat bv has managed the copyrights of Annie M.G. Schmidt. Marije Tolman came up with a logo.
