About the Author

Wolf Erlbruch is a German illustrator and writer of children's books. He combines various techniques for the artwork in his books, including cutting and pasting, drawing, and painting. His style is sometimes surrealist and is widely copied inside and outside Germany. Some of his story books have challenging themes such as death and the meaning of life. They have won many awards, including the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis in 1993 and 2003.

For his "lasting contribution" as a children's illustrator Erlbruch received the Hans Christian Andersen Medal in 2006.

In 2017, he was the first German to win the important Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award.

Wolf Erlbruch on winning the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award; “Oh Astrid I love you! She didn’t know me but I knew her for a long time through her books, which I love for her humour and sharpness. It’s everybody’s humour, it’s the kind of humour everyone can appreciate. I never believed I would receive this award but now I know it is true. I’m still in a shock and will be for some time. But it’s wonderful!”

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
