Stine Jensen is a philosopher, writer and also a television show creator. We were asked to work with Stine on her first children’s book.
We came up with the idea that philosoper Stine lives with her cat in a castle in the middle of a forest. She receives handwritten letters in her mailbox with all kinds of questions. Stine is answering the questions by writing letters back. The books is a collection of the questions and answers.
