Josefine Ottesen (1956) is one of Denmark’s most popular authors of books for children and young adults, in terms of both enjoyment and sales. During the last almost 40 years, Josefine’s authorship has, on several occasions, set the agenda on the Danish children and young adults' book scene. The many national awards and international nominations she has received, covering several different works, testify to her broad appeal and popularity. Several of her books for young people have also met with a positive response from a more mature reading public. With her imaginative stories, filled with adventure and fantasy, Josefine Ottesen has contributed to many children’s joyful conquest of reading, as well as retaining young people, boys especially, as readers at an age when their interest in books often wanes.
