When she was a little girl, Katia Canciani read constantly. After reading all of these adventure novels, she decided it was time to live an adventure of her own and she became a pilot. Year after year she travelled and flew, and her head became like a very busy airport hall, ideas taking off one after the other. Since her sky was getting a bit too full, she decided to land all of her planes? on paper! Katia then published 36 books for children. She spends her time flying planes and meeting kids in schools.
