About the Author

British author Charles Dickens (1812-1870) was a titan of English literature. Among his most beloved works are classics such as David Copperfield, Bleak House, A Tale of Two Cities, Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, and Great Expectations. He wrote continually about the plight of the poor and the division of wealth in nineteenth-century England, the heartbreaking circumstances of which he knew only too well. When Dickens was twelve years old, his father was sent to debtors' prison, forcing the young boy to leave school and seek factory work to help support his parents and seven siblings. Although Dickens eventually began his literary career as a journalist, it is his endearing novels that have stood the test of time.

Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was described by The London Times as "one of the most eminent book illustrators of his day" with " a special place in the hearts of children." He was a prominent British illustrator of many classic children's books from The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm to Sleeping Beauty to Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen and dozens more. His illustrations from the 1919 edition of Cinderella are timeless examples of his unique and beautiful watercolor sillouettes.
