So who is the Frog? Well, if you read here, you will find out!
So far, all literature that Wonderfroggy publishes is written by Emma C Elliott, who is also manager and owner of the company.
In the future, Wonderfroggy plans on publishing books by other authors and illustrators.
Emma C Elliott: I have written stories since I was a child, especially exciting whodunnits and mysteries. I love writing mysteries and thrillers, but have a special passion for childish stories, for examples fairy-tales. To create the images in my books, I use all kinds of materials, from pens to brushes, needle and thread to camera. My texts and images can together create an enchanting world to get lost in for a moment!
I have been published before Wonderfroggy, for example poetry and Christmas short-stories that have been features in the Christmas magazine
"Jul i Jämtland".

If you're curious about why and how Wonderfroggy came about, don't fret, but read below!
Wonderfroggy was founded in 2010 by me, Emma C Elliott. It is a publishing company releasing fiction, fact books, books for children and youth, and poetry. First and foremost the books are written by me, but in the future the company plans to publish work by other authors and illustrators too.
Eventually the company will also produce and sell boardgames, in the spirit of making learning fun (which it is!)!
I started Wonderfroggy because I love books and reading, as well as having a passion for the work it means creating a book - thinking of a story, writing it down and creating imagery to suit the story.
With my books, I want to entertain young and old, and be a part of learning and thinking, reflecting. Reading is life!
