Info on the author:

Kathleen Amant (1969, Aalst) studied applied Arts at the Academy of Ghent. At the moment she works as a completely independent and self-employed illustrator and designer of toddler's books. In 2004 she wrote her first two toddler books, about Anna. These stories are recognisable for toddlers since they are about their own lives, there are a lot of emotions involved and they always contain humor. The Anna-series and several other series such as Little Witch Mimi and Lou are huge bestsellers in Belgium and the Netherlands. Several of her titles are available in countries all over the world. Kathleen Amant says that her three children, Din, Arend, and Noa, are her biggest inspiration.
