Finland’s Sinikka Nopola and Tiina Nopola are sisters who have written over 30 children’s books together. Their bestselling book series feature some of the best-loved, most popular characters in Finnish children’s literature – most importantly, Ricky Rapper.
“Ricky is a pretty sensitive boy who sometimes expresses his thoughts and feelings by rapping, but he’s also a little comical,” the sisters wrote. “Maybe the reason why Ricky Rapper is the first book so many boys read on their own is that it’s easy for them to relate to the character.”
“Our books operate at different levels for children and adults. Readers of different ages laugh at different things and understand the text in their own ways.”
