About the Author

Laura Filippucci was born in Milan, Italy. She is a children's book illustrator who studied illustration at the Istituto Europeo di Design in her hometown and the School of Visual Arts in New York. She was an UNICEF Award winner at the 25th Illustrators' Exhibition at Bologna Children's Book Fair. She lives in Milan with her husband, also an illustrator, and their three children.

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was born in Odense, Denmark, the son of a poor shoemaker and a washerwoman. As a young teenager, he became quite well known in Odense as a reciter of drama and as a singer. When he was fourteen, he set off for the capital, Copenhagen, determined to become a national success on the stage. He failed miserably, but made some influential friends in the capital who got him into school to remedy his lack of proper education. In 1829 his first book was published. After that, books came out at regular intervals. His stories began to be translated into English as early as 1846. Since then, numerous editions, and more recently Hollywood songs and Disney cartoons, have helped to ensure the continuing popularity of the stories in the English-speaking world.
