Emma Adbåge’s stories and illustrations make everyday emotions and experiences both immediately recognisable and richly interesting. Both her stories and her drawings are observant, succinct, humorous and perceptive. Her illustrations, with their carefully drawn lines and gentle colours, combine small details with characters whose bodily postures and facial expressions give a clear insight into what they think and feel. She has won several awards, including the Elsa Beskow Plaque and the Lennart Hellsing Prize. 2018 she won the August Prize for Gropen.
