Murielle Szac was born in Lyon in 1964. Always a lover of words, she became a writer and journalist and was for many years editor-in-chief of the magazines Popi, Tralalire and Belles Histoires. So she knows the world of tiny tots inside out, as well as school, because nowadays she is involved in developing the link between Bayard’s magazines and teachers. She likes stories that make you laugh, cry or dream, stories that deal with essential themes and fill you with a desire to change the world. She is also the editor of the ‘Ceux qui ont dit non’ series (Actes Sud Junior) and ‘Poés’idéal’ (Editions Bruno Doucey).
