Ellen Karlsson has always found herself among children’s books. First as a book devouring kid and then later, already at the age of fifteen, working extra in a children’s bookstore. Around the same time, she also began to write. In 2012 she started up a picture book publisher and now works full time with it, along with her writing. In 2013 Ellen debuted with Snöret, fågeln och jag (String, the Bird and Me) for which she was awarded the August Prize, together with Eva Lindström. Today, with four books published, Ellen Karlsson is considered one of Sweden’s finest children’s book writers.
