Gro Dahle
Norway

Never in her nose.
And never in her mouth.
Never stuck in dirty holes.
Lussi’s fingers do what they’re told.
What nice fingers!

Gro Dahle (52, living in Tjøme, Norway) has written approximately sixty books and plays, libretti, scholary works, articles and essays. She writes poems, short stories, novels and picture books for readers of all ages. Especially the picture book "Sinna Mann" ("Angry Man") has been translated into many languages

She is enganged in picture books as an independent artistic media and as an interesting mixture of research and play, as a mixture of theatre and poem, as an art gallery for children, and as a good way of relaying difficult subjects to both children, adults and youth, excactly because the picture book is good to read together as well as alone, both in groups, in therapy and on a screen.
