Marketing strategies:
The films are based on the popular books with the same titles and are produced in close collaboration with Stina Wirsén, a children's' book author and illustrator. The films are produced by FilmTecknarna FictionAB and Producer Linda Hambäck, directed by Jessica Laurén, and co-produced by Film i Väst with support from the Swedish Film Institute and the Nordic Film and TV fund.

"We really wanted to fill the gap of good quality films for preschool children", explains Linda Hambäck, producer at FilmTecknarna FictionAB. "Knowing that the WHO?-books have been so successful for smaller children we contacted Stina Wirsén, who has been approached many times before. She felt that our ideas and respect to keep the characters' originality could bring life to the books, and after the gala premier this Sunday with hundreds of children, we happily concluded that we had succeeded to transfer the children's love for the books to the screens."

Stina Wirsén is widely known for her illustrations. The illustrations of the WHO?-characters, which are available as art pieces, are covering the walls of many children's rooms, while the books have been released in many territories; including Scandinavia, Japan, Germany and are translated to numerous languages such as Arabic, Chinese and Persian.
