Lena Sjöberg is a writer and illustrator who has created almost twenty books, both fiction and non-fiction. She frequently writes in verse, taking a warm-hearted, humanist, humorous approach to the theme of the emotional bonds between children and adults. Each book is designed as a total work of art. The small details in her illustrations hint at a wider world beyond, encouraging children to imagine, and explore their own creativity. She has won the Elsa Beskow Plaque and has twice been nominated for the August Prize.
