Rébecca Dautremer was born in 1971 in Gap in the South of France (Hautes Alpes). She attended classes in the ENSAD of Paris and got a degree in graphic edition in 1995. She afterwards became a graphic editor and illustrator. A few years ago, she started to write books of her own. Her picture books are very poetic, with a hint of humour. Inspired by fairy tales, she offers new and more entertaining stories, one of my personal favorites being The Secret Lives of Princesses.
