Christopher Franceschelli

Christopher Franceschelli is a long-time publisher, editor, and creator of children's books who was born and reared in New York. His inspiration for this book came from a vivid memory as a seven-year-old of watching a magician draw a red ribbon out of one end of an impossibly small box, only for the red to vanish and be replaced by a green ribbon as the magician tugged on the other end. Christopher aimed to restore Oliver's sense of wonder.
