- After more than two decades as musician and cultural troublemaker, Joe Kitchen (also known as Koos Kombuis) seems to have discovered a new niche as author of books for young people.
- In 2016, Monster goggas (Monster bugs), a story for young readers, is released and in 2018 a youth novel for teenagers, Blasjan en die blou kitaar (Blasjan and the blue guitar).
- Hubert the Useless Unicorn, a fun-filled modern version of the ancient ugly duckling tale, is a self-illustrated publication that will be enjoyed not only by children, but by everybody who is young at heart!
- Joe feels that “this is a light-hearted and humorous attempt to reconcile two strictly opposing ideologies: the belief in creationism and the theory of evolution”.
