About This Book

A pink-winged creature flies across each page; Life is present within all things. The pastel-colored protagonist befriends and animates every living being from bees that pollinate spring flowers to turtles that live under the sea to grandparents who impart wise words. Whether short or long, Life is always present.

A sensitive story that answers many childhood questions, I am Life is the lovingly crafted complementary volume to Life and I, a Little Gestalten favorite. As Life and I addressed themes of loss, I am Life embarks on a colorful journey about Life’s magic and the never-ending search for the meaning of life.

A native of Norway, Elisabeth Helland Larsen studied theatre in Paris at the École Internationale de Théâtre´Jacques Lecoq and children’s literature in Oslo at the Norsk Barnebokinstitutt. She has worked as a clown for more than 20 years in hospitals and hospices, as well as refugee camps, circuses, and theaters.

Marine Schneider has drawn since she could hold a pencil. The young Belgian illustrator just received her degree from the LUCA School of Arts. Life and I was her children’s book debut.
