About the Author

Washington Irving (1783-1859) was an American writer, historian and diplomat. Irving served as the American ambassador to Spain in 1840s, and was among the first American writers to earn acclaim in Europe. He argued that writing should be considered as a legitimate profession, and advocated for stronger laws to protect writers against copyright infringement. Irving's love for adventure and drama influenced his work heavily. His most popular works, Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, were inspired by his visit to the Catskill mountains. Irving is credited to have perfected the short story form, and inspired generations of American writer.

Michaelangelo Zane, was impressed with Fiza Pathan's passion for Classic books, and her plan to abridge rare classics, which have never been abridged for children age 8 to 12. He is equally passionate about the importance of education and reading of good literature in a child's life. He came aboard, and has contributed his time, expertise, and writing skills to the venture. The ideas for the illustrations are their joint effort, and have been beautifully executed by Vivek Nag.
