Jac. A. Hazelaar was a Dutch comics artist who was so enthusiastic about the popular children's comic 'Mijnheer Prikkebeen', (originally published in 1866 and written by J.A.A. Goeverneur, who had stolen the idea from Rudolphe Töppfer's 'Monsieur Cryptogame'), that he created a comic about his son, 'De Zoon van Prikkebeen', somewhere around the 1930s. It probably ran in children's magazine De Kakatoe, and was first printed in book form in 1951.
Hazelaar used the same style as Goeverneur, although a little less accomplished. However, a lot was made up for by his funny rhymes and eye for details. Other works by Jac. A. Hazelaar include 'Het Boek van Jan Klaassen', 'Hoera, Jan Klaassen is weer aan de gang!', 'Floris Ommegangck', 'De Zeven Muzikanten', 'De Wondersteen' and 'Van de Goede Koning Bastiaan'.
