Meet the Author

Roberto Piumini lives and works in his native Italy. He has worked with children as both a teacher and a theater actor/entertainer. He credits these experiences for inspiring the youthful language of his many books. With his crisp and imaginative way of dealing with every kind of subject, he charms his young readers. His award-winning books, for both children and adults, have been translated into many languages.

Nicoletta Costa was born in Trieste, Italy, in 1953, where she still lives and works. She took a degree in Architecture at the University of Venice in 1978 and two years later she began her career as illustrator. She has illustrated, as well as written, dozens of picture books. Costa was awarded the Andersen Prize for best children’s illustrator in 1994.
