About the Author

Beatrice Alemagna was born in Bologna, Italy in 1973. When she was a child her biggest heroes were Pippi Longstocking, Marcovaldo, Karlsson on the roof, Silvester and Meffi. At age 8, she decided that, whatever the cost, when she grew up she would become a painter and a writer of novels. Her picture books have won multiple awards including the Landerneau Prize in France for Un Grand Jour De Rien, and she has been selected four times for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award. Her books include A Lion in Paris (Tate Publishing, 2014), The Marvellous Fluffy Squishy Itty Bitty (Thames and Hudson, 2015) and What is a Child? (Tate Publishing, 2016). Beatrice lives in Paris, France.
