Through 39 poems, Lillegraven explores what it means to be young and alive. In I am I am I am, the poems and emotions shift with the changing seasons, from spring, summer, autumn, to winter, and through the ever-changing experiences of childhood.
The prolific writer, who elegantly handles a broad spectrum of genres, has proven with this book to be an equally important voice for children as she is for adults.
The stunning collection of poetry was awarded Nynorsk Litteraturpris, The Most Beautiful Book of the Year for Children and Young Adult, and nominated for the Brage Prize. Lillegraven already won the Brage Prize in 2013, for the narrative poetry book Urd.
The book is illustrated by the award-winning Mari Kanstad Johansen. Design by Torill Stranger, Stranger Design.
Nominated Brage prize 2016.
Winner of The Most Beautiful Book of the Year, Grafill 2017.
