The main focus of my ‘Knomes’ series is to activate the reader.
And I’m proud to say that the idea really resonates with the kids.
They color, they play, they dress up, they bake, they exercise and they read
… and they can’t get enough of the Knomes. Below, is a collage of some of
the many drawings and photos I have received from my wonderful readers. WELCOME
Hi. I’m Jan Kjaer, children’s book writer and illustrator.
I actually started out working for Lego as an illustrator and story developer (view my Lego work here). After almost a decade with the lovely bricks, I decided to try my hand at writing my own stories.
In 2004 my first book was published, and since then I have written 46 books and they’ve been published in 14 countries. I’m truly grateful being able to write for a living and the most rewarding thing about this is when I receive letters and drawings from my readers. Click here to see the great masterpieces I have received.
Early in my authorship I realized that I felt a calling towards reaching the reluctant readers. With my style of writing and drawing it seemed like the natural thing to do. For over a decade now I have been experimenting and developing new ways to attract the reluctant readers and give them a love for reading. See some of my inventions here.
I encourage you to have a look around and don’t be shy – drop me a line if you have any comments or questions.
