Author Biography

Sannel Larson was born on the west coast, north of Sweden's second largest city, Gothenburg. Her fascination for books started very early, especially the illustrated ones, like the books of the Swedish children's authors, Astrid Lindgren and Elsa Beskow.

She remembers escaping in between the covers of the book and become one of the figures in the illustrations. She let the imaginative world take over her mind until the last illustration was seen. She was drawn to those books like bees to nectar, and she still is.

She has always been very artistic and creative in different fields, but it was not until later in life she had the opportunity to follow her lifelong dream, to become a full-time writer, poet and illustrator of children's books.

She loves the magical process of using her imagination by inventing characters, and see them come alive on her drawing pad. When she starts she never know where these “new friends” of hers, will lead her. It's always a very exciting and colorful path, she say's. Sannel want her children's books to be fun to read out loud, with silly rhythm and rhyme, accompanied with lot's of whimsical drawings to look at.

Her studio is a rugged, old cottage in the Swedish forest, with the sea, just a stone's throw away. Her fluffy, loyal companion, Max keeps her company while she works.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Melvin. . . bad, bad kitten! by Sannel Larson is an absolutely delightful book about the antics of Melvin the cat. The book is adorable and will remind you of the antics of the pets you have at home. You will start looking them in a different light after reading this amusing book. All pets have an identity of their own and Melvin has his. The author has written it in a very silly manner with some rhyming verses that will appeal to small children. Melvin is a naughty kitten that makes children laugh with his behavior.

It's a beautiful book of verses which the author has penned, keeping in mind the youthful audience. Children love to read anything silly and light and the author has written just that with Melvin, the cat, as the main character of the book. The illustrations are really cute. I found the illustration with the strawberry nose hilarious. The illustrator has also created something that is so appealing to a child.

The author's love for children is evident in the book. It is one of the cutest cat stories/verses I have read in recent times. It is so difficult to say what I liked most about the book. Everything is so appealing and cuddly. Kids are also introduced to rhyming verses in a very subtle way, getting them into reading verses and trying to write or recite small rhyming poems. Absolutely delightful and a treat for young readers.
