About the Author

Clotilde Perrin is the award-winning author and illustrator of over thirty books for children including Inside the Villains, a lift-the-flaps book that literally takes the reader inside the most famous fairytale villains: the wolf, the witch and the giant. The book was a sensation on its release in Europe – selling over tens of thousands in only a few months – and the English edition was released by Gecko Press in October 2018.

Perrin says the idea for her book came from a film about a couple who had their memories erased, giving her the idea of going right inside a character’s head and heart:

“To make this book, I read and re-read an astronomical number of tales: Grimm, Perrault, Andersen, the Russian tales. I wanted my characters to be accurate and to know them better. I hulled the characters, I sought their neuroses, their anxieties, their fears, as if they were patients to be treated.”
