Virpi Penna


Virpi Penna is an award-winning illustrator and graphic artist, whose images glow with the delicate joy of colour and the enchantment of fairy tales. She has illustrated books by e.g. Ville Hytönen, Heikki Niska and Maria Vuorio.

“The inhabitants of Bug Forest are as cute as can be…the language is wonderfully real, bold and, most importantly, descriptive. The illustrations are expressive, and there are pictures on every page, holding the attention of even the smallest readers.”
