Judith Koppens (Deurne, NL, 1969) was - and is - a bit of a dreamer. In her young years, she spend her hours drawing and making up stories. She continued this when she started working as a teacher at a primary school, after she finished her pedagogic study. Her students inspired Judith with their spontaneity and sincerity to write all sorts of stories. In 2004 she used one of them for a picture book. Since then she has written more than 40 books for children aged 3 to 6 years and for adults who have an affinity with education and picture books, next to her job as a teacher.
