The Author

Frauke Nahrgang was born in 1951 in Stadtallendorf, where she lives today with her husband and two children. She has been working as a primary school teacher since 1976 and enjoys teaching school beginners most of all. At school she began to write texts for beginners, and she has been writing children's books since 1987. Frauke Nahrgang watches children very carefully and is interested in how they make contact, talk and communicate with each other. She transfers these observations strikingly into the stories in her picture books.

The Illustrator

She then worked as a jewelry designer and illustrated title pages for children's books part time. She has devoted herself primarily to children's illustrations since 2003.
