About the Author

Alain Serres was a kindergarten teacher who was inspired by his young students to write children's books. He has since published more than one hundred titles for children of all ages, many of which have been translated into other languages. In 1996 Serres founded the highly regarded French publishing house Rue du Monde, whose mission is to provide children with books that allow them to question and imagine the world. He lives in Paris.

Aure´lia Fronty studied textile design at l'E´cole Duperre´ in Paris and worked in fashion before she began to illustrate children's books. Her colorful, nai]ve-style art is inspired by her Catalan roots as well as her travels in Africa, Asia and South America. She has illustrated more than forty titles, which have been published around the world. She has also exhibited her art in France and in the United Kingdom. She lives in Montreuil, France.


"I am a child with eyes, hands, a voice, a heart, and rights. I have the right to a first name, a last name, a family that smiles at me, and a country that is my home. I have the right to have enough food to eat and water to drink so that I can grow."
