I'm a full time writer and illustrator from Denmark. My first book was published in 1990, and since then, I've written books for all ages, from picture books for the youngest reader to novels for adults. The last ten years I've focused om YA novels with the odd picture book thrown in here and there.

They are in Danish I'm afraid, but if you get your browser to translate them, I hope you'll get some kind of meaningfull information out of it.

Every parent is familiar with the sentence "Mom/Dad, I'm bored." It's reassuring to see, that dinosaur parents face the same problem.
Dino is bored. His mother suggests, he plays his favourite games, like building a tower with stones or catching butterflies. But to no avail, it's all terribly boring.
How about helping Mom in the kitchen preparing supper? NO, that's horribly boring, too.
But his mother has none of it. He has to help, that's it.
Dino has to wash lizards in the water and first he hates it, but slowly it isn't too bad and eventually the sense of achievement sets in.
So, what will his mother suggest next? And is Dino still bored?
Children will love Dino. The illustrations are brilliant fun to look at. Dino's facial expressions are captured excellently. And it's a story kids can easily relate to. Why not get started with something and see if you still feel so bored. It may turn out to be interesting and fun.
Jeg elsker bogen. :0)
