Jakob Martin Strid honored at the Royal Culture Award show!

One of our collaborators – the Danish author Jakob Martin Strid was finally honored by the royal Danish family. Strid received Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary´s great cultural prize of half a million Danish kroner.

WOW!!!

That´s a lot of money!! But it´s certainly well deserved. As an artist, he is best known for his satirical stripes in the Danish newspaper Politiken. But as an author, he received huge recognition with his children’s book from 1999 “Mustafa’s Kiosk”. In 2010 Crunchy Frog released “Mustafa’s Kiosk” as an audiobook, with Strids cartoons in it. Our very own Tremolo Beer Gut made a soundtrack, and the wonderful Povl Dissing made the voice overs. We just want to say congratulations to Jakob Martin Strid!! One of the finest authors in DK.

By the way, you can buy “Mustafa’s Kiosk” right here.
