Per Karlén

“Per José Karlén is a Swedish illustrator and animator who has a long, long list of awards to his name, including the Quentin Blake Narrative Illustration Award. His wickedly funny and individual work appeals to both adults and children alike, and his freelance work includes everything from children’s books to illustrations for The Times, The Independent and for Royal Mail.” – Octopus Publishing Group, UK

“With “The Emotion Book” Per Karlén has laid the foundation for a way of writing and illustrating that can map the future road for picture books. With a strong sense of the fundamentals of existence and a sharp eye for color and form, he put forward a thoughtful message: Take your feelings seriously, talk about them!” – Rabén & Sjögren Publisher
