About the Author

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875), Danish author and poet, wrote numerous poems, plays, stories and travel essays, but is best known for his fairy tales. He wrote over one hundred and fifty, published in numerous collections during his life, and many still in print today.

Lisbeth Zwerger has been accorded nearly every prize that can be given, including the highest international award for lifetime achievement, the Hans Christian Andersen Medal. Since 1981 she has devoted her extraordinary talents to children s literature, to stories as charming and picturesque as her native Vienna. Always surprising, always engaging, her artwork combines technical mastery with an insight and gentleness so rare and captivating that she has been correctly called one of the finest illustrators of the twentieth century.

Johanna AdorjAn, born in 1971 in Stockholm, has worked as an editor and writer for various newspapers and magazines. A former theater and opera student, she has also written for stage and screen. She lives in Berlin.
