I don’t want to teach people anything with my books. I want to tell them unusual and hopefully fun stories about problems big and small — about fear, identity issues and other things that affect us humans, both children and adults.

Curious about the work of Argentinian illustrator Isol, who won the 2013 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award? Here’s an informative video about her work:

  1. Great video. Thanks for introducing me to Isol. I’m going to have to track down that book with the glow-in-the-dark ink asap. So cool.

  2. This just blew my mind! I was also unfamiliar with her work. Love the extremes/exaggeration. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a beautiful video and fabulous art work. I love the statement about the aim of her books, as well.
