When Fred Marcellino's first picture book--Puss in Boots--was published, its success was doubted. It was one of many of the same story. But Marcellino's version won a Caldecott Honor Medal and became a bestseller for an audience of all ages. Now Marcellino turns to Andersen's beloved story of the one-legged soldier and the paper ballerina he admires from afar. Full color.

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was born in Odense, Denmark to a poor family. He left home as a 14-year-old to seek his fortune at the theatre in Copenhagen. Andersen began writing plays and poetry before he left for Copenhagen, but it was not until 1835 that he published the first of the fairytales that would bring him international renown. Since then, his over 200 fairytales have enjoyed undiminished popularity, providing the basis for favorite American interpretations such as Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
His most recent books, The Story of Little Babaji and Ouch! are both ALA Notable Children's Books.
Dancing By the Light of the Moon: The Art of Fred Marcellino will open on November 9, 2002 and run through January 26, 2003 at The Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
