The Author

Patricia Mennen was born in 1961 in Augsburg. While she was studying German, art history and theater, she completed internships with various daily newspapers. After working as a children's book editor for six years and having a daughter, she began writing books. Today she lives with her family in southern Germany and Provence, France. The freelance author says that the curiosity of a child has never left her, and she tries to see the world with the eyes of a child.

The Illustrator

Susanne Szesny was born in 1965. She studied visual communication in Münster and received a diploma in design. After her studies, she worked freelance as an illustrator of games books, board books and picture books. In her opinion, a book should transport an inner value (a message, a teaching) and be a source of inspiration for children and adults equally. With her pictures she tries to build a bridge between the emotional worlds of children and adults.
