For more than twenty years Lena Shiffman has been illustrating children’s books. Born and raised in Sweden, she was inspired by a country rich in storytelling. Lena believes, “A perfect book has a wonderful fusion of words and pictures, where the words are the skeleton for the story and the pictures are the flesh and blood to enrich it.”
