Biographical / Historical

Edith Totterman Unnerstad was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1900 to Swedish parents. Her family moved to Sweden in 1910; she studied at Detthow College and at an art school in Stockholm. She created her first book at the age of eleven, and from that time wanted to be a writer. But family and other responsibilities and activities prevented her from becoming a professional writer until the age of 32, when she published her first children's book. Although she has also written novels for adults, her favorite theme was always childhood. Unnerstad died in 1982.
