(AP) Argentine illustrator and writer Marisol Misenta has won the 5 million kronor ($780,000) Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award for children's literature.

The jury honored Misenta, also known as Isol, for picture books that "vibrate with energy and explosive emotions."

Misenta has written and illustrated 10 children's books, starting with her 1997 debut "Vida de perros." She has also illustrated works by other authors, including Argentine poet Jorge Lujan, the jury said.

The annual award is named for the late Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren, creator of the Pippi Longstocking book series.
