About the Author:

Johanna Spyri (1827-1901) was born in Switzerland in a village overlooking Lake Zurich. Very little is known of her life, although she became the author of almost fifty novels. Heidi was originally published in 1880 as Heidi's Years of Wandering and Learning. It was so successful that a sequel followed the next year - it too was an immediate bestseller and the two books were combined into a single volume. The story was translated into English within a few years. It quickly became, and remains, her most popular book. Angelo Rinaldi gained immediate success with his first picture book Old Hush Wing written by Alan Brown HarperCollins), which was nominated for two prestigious awards - the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Mother Goose Award. Since then he has been building a strong reputation for his beautiful picture books, and his covers for both adult and children's titles.
