Meet the Creator
Christina Kristoffersson Ameln - Creator & Author
At the beginning of 2016, creator and author Christina Kristoffersson Ameln decided for personal and professional reasons to explore South-East Asia with her husband and two young children. It proved to be an amazing experience of new perspectives and life lessons for her and her whole family.
Christina decided children's books on travel and discovery would be a wonderful opportunity to share these corners of the world to all that enjoy, want to, and dream of discovering new places.
The angle of these discovery and travel books is to explore the world through the eyes of two young characters making them relatable to their audience of children and to parents who see the behaviour of their kids in these characters.
