What is it?

Witte Wieven is a graphic novel  with Augmented Reality about the Dutch folklore with the same name. They are female ghosts who dress in white and protect sacred things. With this book I introduce Dutch children to one of the many folklore tales we have in our country. Most tales stay unknown, because we focus more on telling stories from abroad. I'd like to change that and show how awesome these folklore tales are!

Even if the graphic novel is fictional, you'll find a more informative part in the last section of the book about the origins of the tales. With my work I like to show that education doesn't have to be associated with big old textbooks. It can be super interactive and fun!

You can find 8 illustrations with a Augmented Reality in the book, which will transport you further into the story!


On her way to the village of Berkendal, Maya gets lost in the forest. During her journey she meets the supernatural, like Will 'o the Wisps and the Wailing Women! But when Maya is tested by them, she must make an important choice that can change her life for good....

Bring this story to life with hidden animations. You as a reader has to power to make decisions for Maya, so choose wisely!
