Chris van Abkoude was a Dutch writer and novelist of mostly childrens books. He wrote the series of Pietje Bell novels from 1914 to 1936 and many books in between. He moved to the U.S.A in 1916 and wrote all the Pietje Bell books in the United States, except for the first one, which he wrote in 1914 in Rotterdam. Before his writing career, Van Abkoude was a teacher- when he noticed the children did not like reading the childrens books of the time, he wrote his own.
