Jenny Løvlie is a Norwegian illustrator, designer, creative, storyteller, and bird enthusiast. Growing up about as far north as it's physically possible to get on mainland Europe has shaped her creative approach. Using bold colors, textures, and strong shapes, she creates stunning landscapes, people, and animals. She's fascinated by the strong bond between humans and animals and the link between humans and nature.

a B.A. in Scandinavian studies and an M.A. in translation. She is the
translator of several books from Norwegian with Enchanted Lion, including
Batchelder Award winner Brown and Batchelder Honor

Beautiful Story

"The text and illustrations work in tandem to bring the magic of apartment living and new friendship to life. Shapes, lines and colors create movement and a strong visual throughline, helping readers' eyes navigate detailed illustrations full of the messy, vibrant elements of life. Patterns and textures add another layer of cozy charm...A love letter to new friendships and apartment living." --Kirkus Reviews
