About me

Writer & Illustrator

A writer and an illustrator, Lluís Farré was born and still lives in Barcelona. He started his professional career in 1993, mostly in children’s literature.

Although most of his books have been published in Spain and in it’s four languages, some have also been translated into English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Polish, Korean and Tibetan. Lluís recently started to publish in the United States, and he also had a very special book published by the Tibetan Government in exile.

Lluís recently started a new adventure of producing a series of wooden toys based on children’s tales, under the brand Paquita’s Toys, inspired by one of his most beloved characters: Paquita, a sheep. These toys will soon be available at different shops in Barcelona as well as through his own website, www.paquitastoys.cat.
