Author Bio

Lenka Chytilová grew up in a small East Moravian village, not far from Zlín. Drawn to books and writing from a young age, it was no surprise when she took a degree in Czech Language and Literature and German Translation at Masaryk University. As part of her studies, Lenka was an intern at the Czech Centre in Berlin. She has always tried to connect books and reading, her greatest hobby, with her work; having for many years worked part-time in a bookshop, she was engaged as an editor and proofreader at the Technical Museum in Brno. No sooner had she graduated from university than she took the opportunity to work on the creation of children’s books for Albatros Media. Lenka likes classic Czech fairy tales, and she loves Večerníček, the Czech television programme for children’s bedtime stories.


Hedviga Gutierrez studies under Professor Dušan Kállay at the Studio of Book Illustration of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava.
