Karin has always had a passion for children’s literature. She thoroughly enjoyed reading picture books to her son and by that point she had started to think about how to get adults excited about reading out loud and how to spark a love of reading in youngsters. The answer? Inspiring stories with beautiful illustrations and an appealing editorial design. She founded Papperlapapp and is now Editor-in-chief and Publishing Manager.
