New Edition Vriendenboek (Friends’ Book) consists of 31 double pages with pre-printed questions — one to be filled out by the owner of the book (the ‘This is me’ section), the rest is meant for 30 friends and classmates. There are passport-like questions (like name, address, length, hobbies, sort hair, favourite school subject, etc), but also more creative questions such as ‘What is the nicest thing you and I did together’, ‘Draw your dream house’ or ‘This is what my bed looks like’. There’s space for a photo, which is carried by a character in underwear that can be dressed with the cool clothes stickers that come with the book.
The book is typically aimed at children of the age of 4 to 12 (primary school age).
