 About the Book 

Christine Nöstlinger is an Austrian writer.By her own admission, Nöstlinger was a wild and angry child. After finishing high school, she wanted to become an artist, and studied graphic arts at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna. She worked as a graphic artist for a few years, before marrying a journalist, Ernst Nöstlinger, with whom she had two daughters. Today she alternates between her home in Vienna and a country house in Lower Austria.The majority of Nöstlingers production is literature for children and for young people, and she also writes for television, radio and newspapers. She centres on the needs of children in her work, with an anti-authoritarian bent. She does not shy away from tackling difficult subjects like racism, discrimination and self-isolation.Her first book was Die feuerrote Friederike, published in 1970, which she illustrated herself. The book was published in English in 1975 as Fiery Frederica.Awards and recognition:Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis (German Youth Literature Prize) 1973, 1988Friedrich Bödecker Prize 1972Kinder- und Jugendbuchpreis der Stadt Wien (Viennese Youth Literature Prize) (five-time winner)Österreichischer Staatspreis für Kinder- und Jugendliteratur (Austrian Youth Literature Prize) 1974, 1979Hans Christian Andersen Award 1984Tolereis des österreichischen Buchhandels für Toleranz in Denken und Handeln 1998Zürcher Kinderbuchpreis La vache qui lit (Zurich Youth Literature Prize) 1990Erster Preis der Stiftung Buchkunst 1993The inaugural Marsh Award for Childrens Literature in Translation for Der Hund kommt!
