Amazon bestselling and award-winning author Janina Rossiter loves three things: design, France and her little family.

She studied communication & illustration design at university, and has lived in Germany (her home country), England (where she met her husband), and now France (where she vows to stay). After graduating with a degree from university she worked as a packaging designer for a few years before setting off on her own and expanding into freelance design. She enjoys the creative energy of Paris, where she lives with her English husband and her two daughters.

With the arrival of her first daughter, Janina’s love for painting and drawing found a new lease on life and, before long, she combined her passion for illustration with the wonderfully inspiring world of children.

British school of Paris.

I was very lucky to work on this fantastic job.
The pupils of the junior school of the British School of Paris designed their own house Logos. I was asked as a graphic designer to take their ideas and to make them into professional logos.

The Blue House has now become the Eiffel Eagles, the Green House the Versailles Vipers, the Red House the Triomphe Tigers and the Yellow House the Louvre Lions.

I was very honored to present the Logos in front of the school and their reaction was very emotional for me. A moment to always remember. Thank you!

Tovi the Penguin Goes on a Treasure Hunt in Paris by Janina Rossiter is a fun children's book about a penguin named Tovi. Tovi and his friends are visiting the city of Paris, when Tovi notices a poster of the Mona Lisa, and falls deeply in love with her. Tovi's friends decide to make a treasure hunt for Tovi to help him find the Mona Lisa. The treasure hunt takes Tovi all over Paris. Tovi sees many well-known landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame, but will Tovi ever see the Mona Lisa in person?

I really enjoyed Tovi the Penguin Goes on a Treasure Hunt in Paris by Janina Rossiter. The book has some funny parts. People will enjoy trying to solve the clues with Tovi. The book is relatable, as many people have visited Paris. I liked that Paris in the book is very similar to Paris in real life, with the illustrations showing the finest details. The illustrations are very well done and depict each scene vividly. Also the pictures really look like places in Paris. The book is very well-written and descriptive. I liked how the clues for the treasure hunt rhymed. Tovi is a really likeable character, because he can be kind of funny. The book is a fun way to learn about Paris, because it teaches about French culture, and about important landmarks. I would recommend Tovi the Penguin Goes on a Treasure Hunt in Paris by Janina Rossiter to all young readers.
