Jet Boeke
(1948) is primarily known for her widely successful Tummy Tom picture books. After a study in Graphic Design at the Amsterdam Rietveld Academy of the Arts, Jet and her partner Arthur van Norden travelled across the Americas, where she first became acquainted with Sesame Street. Being very enthusiastic about the show, Jet wondered if she could be a part of the Dutch edition, that just started out – and she could. Jet decided to focus on toddlers in developing content for the show. And what do toddlers like best? Being read to of course! Jet started making picture books that were  to be read aloud to children during the show, and that’s how Tummy Tom, based on her own cat at the time, came to life. Jet has been making stories for over 30 years now, her beloved Tummy Tom never decreasing in popularity.
