About the Author


HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN was a Danish author who is best remembered for his fairy tales, which have been translated into 125 languages. They have become culturally embedded in the West's collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. Some of his most famous fairy tales include The Emperor's New Clothes, The Little Mermaid, The Nightingale, The Snow Queen, The Ugly Duckling, and many more.

SANNA ANNUKKA is an English/Finnish printmaker and textile designer. She divides her time between designing collections for the Finnish textile brand Marimekko, and working on her own range of silkscreen prints and other products.
