About the Author
Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish writer and author of many notable books including The Snow Queen. He specialized in writing fairytales that were inspired by tales he had heard as a child. As his writing evolved his fairytales became more bold and out of the box. Andersen's stories have been translated into more than 125 languages and have inspired many plays, films and ballets.
Jerry Pinkney (1939-2021) illustrated 100 children's books, and his work earned the 2010 Caldecott Medal, five Caldecott Honor Medals, five Coretta Scott King Awards, five Coretta Scott King Honors, five New York Times Best Illustrated Book awards, and, in 2006, the Original Art Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Illustrators. Jerry Pinkney's many acclaimed titles included John Henry, Minty, Sam and the Tigers, The Ugly Duckling, and Mirandy and Brother Wind. Find out more at JerryPinkneyStudio.com.
