About the Author
Hans Christian Andersen was a Danish fairy tale writer and poet who is most noted for his Fairy Tales, including the enduring children's stories "The Snow Queen," "The Little Mermaid," "Thumbelina," and "The Ugy Duckling." Through his youth Andersen worked as a weaver's apprentice and actor before turning to writing. Andersen's works have been translated into more than 150 languages and have inspired countless films, plays, and ballets. Although Andersen died in 1875, the anniversary of his birthday (June 2) continues to celebrated each year as International Children's Book Day.
Lynch's illustrations have wonmany awards in his native Ireland. Lynch was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the youngest in a family of five children. His professor in art school, including Raymond Briggs, encouraged him to try his hand at children's books. He received his degree in fine arts.
"P. J. Lynch's lovely illustrations call on all sorts of styles, quoting Rackham and Dulac and Rockwell." --The Guardian
