The Author

Bernd Penners, born in 1958, is an elementary school teacher and is still engaged in this career with great enthusiasm. With his books he would like to make children smile and show that it's a good idea to not always take things super seriously.

The Illustrator

Naples is my city. This is where I live, this is where I used to fill sheets, notebooks and diaries with my drawings when I was a child. After studying architecture, I realised that what I liked a lot more than straight lines and square corners was curved, soft pencil strokes, a magic wand that was capable of narrating my imagination in a blank space. These days, illustrating texts for children is my job; paper and pencil have given way to tablet and digital pen, but the passion and the feeling are still the same.
