    Alf Proysen was born in 1914 in Norway, where he became an important figure in literature, music, television and radio. He is best remembered in the English-speaking world for his stories of Mrs Pepperpot (known as the "teaspoon lady" in his native land). The first book was released in 1956 to immediate success, and his stories have been loved by children ever since and have been translated into many different languages. He died in 1970 at the age of 56.
