Though many modern scholars dispute his existence, Aesop's life was chronicled by first century Greek historians who wrote that Aesop, or Aethiop, was born into Greek slavery in 620 B.C. Freed because of his wit and wisdom, Aesop supposedly traveled throughout Greece and was employed at various times by the governments of Athens and Corinth. Some of Aesop's most recognized fables are The Tortoise and the Hare, The Fox and the Grapes, and The Ant and the Grasshopper. His simple but effective morals are widely used and illustrated for children.
Bernadette Watts was born in Northampton, England, in 1942. From an early age her father always ensured that she had paper to draw on despite its scarcity in the post-war years. At the age of six she made her first trip to the cinema to see Walt Disney’s “Pinocchio,” from that moment on it was clear to her that she wanted to draw. This dream started to turn to reality when she received a place to study at Maidstone College of Art where her teachers included Brian Wildsmith, William Stobbs and, later, an unknown young artist by the name of David Hockney. In 1967 Bernadette went to the Frankfurt Bookfair for the first time. Publisher Dimitri Sidjanski was enchanted with her work and in 1968, her first book, “Little Red Riding Hood,” was published by NordSüd. To this day it remains in print and is among her most loved. Over the next four decades there followed an array of books illustrated by Bernadette, many of them Grimm or Andersen fairy tales but also some self-penned stories. To this day Bernadette is full of ideas for new projects although she increasingly draws inspiration from the everyday flora and fauna around her home in Kent, UK.
