Anna Tim lives in Norrköping and works as an illustrator and designer. For OLIKA, she has previously made lovely drawing and craft books. The books about the animals are her first children's books.
"It was fun to play with different attributes that could suit different personalities. For many it came naturally, such as a work helmet for Mika myra or a tie for Sire Svan. I tried to keep the animals' natural appearance as far as possible, while it's fun to fantasize about what these particular animals would choose to wear as a hat, scarf or something. It is important for me to try to create a connection between the reader and the animals in a simple and humorous way."
