Stefan Falke

Like so many little girls, Maryann Macdonald once dreamed of being a dancer. Dance lessons were not on offer in her big family but paper was, so Maryann became a writer instead.

She has written more than twenty-five books for young readers, including The Little Dancers. She grew up near Detroit and lived for many years in France and England before making New York City her home.
