Author description

Julian Tuwim (1894-1953) was one of Poland's leading poets. He won fame not just for his adult verse but also for his rhymes for children, many of which are classics known to every Polish child. Nobody knows if he ever set out to sea to see a whale. Bohdan Butenko (born 1931) is one of Poland's top illustrators, whose drawings appear in more than 200 children's books. He has won many prizes, among them the 2012 Order of the Smile - a special medal awarded by children to adults who are paricularly kind to them.
