About the Author

Ludwig Bemelmans

Ludwig Bemelmans (1898-1962) wrote and illustrated over 40 books including the world famous Madeline children's books. Born in the Austrian Tyrol, he was sent to America at the age of 16 after he shot a head-waiter at his uncle's hotel. He arrived in New York sporting pistols to fend off Native Americans. A legendary traveller and bon vivant, he asked to have 'Tell Them It Was Wonderful' carved on his gravestone.
