Author Bio
Jerry Pinkney
Jerry Pinkney's talent as an artist earned him a scholarship to the Philadelphia Museum College of Art. After graduation he worked as a designer for a greeting card company. Pinkney published his first picture book for children, THE ADVENTURES OF SPIDER: A WEST AFRICAN FOLK TALE, in 1964. In 1986 he won the Coretta Scott King Award for his illustrations for THE PATCHWORK QUILT; the following year he won the award again for HALF MOON AND ONE WHOLE STAR. His illustrations for THE TALKING EGG earned a 1988 Caldecott Honor. In 1989, his illustrations for MIRANDY AND BROTHER WIND led to that book being named a Caldecott Honor Book and winning the Coretta Scott King Award.

Hans Christian Andersen is best known for his fairy tales, although he also wrote plays, novels, travel books, and an autobiography. Born and raised in Odense, an island off the coast of Denmark, he was the only child of a shoemaker and a washerwoman. Many of the characters found in Andersen's fairy tales contain the traits of their author--for example, like the swan in "The Ugly Duckling" Andersen was picked on before he was "transformed" into a successful writer. Andersen's stories have been translated into more languages than any other book except the Bible.
