About Jonatan Wibe
For Jonatan, children's books are the place where he can fuse written and spoken language into fun play. Without the red lines of the Spelling Dictionary or the condemning glances of linguists. He believes that the earlier children become acquainted with the intricacies of the Danish language, the sooner they can develop and explore the language. In this way, they can increase the competencies for school and educational life.
