Petros Hatzopoulos was born on January 2nd 1979. His mother was born on April 2 and she used to read many fairy tales to him, so he grew to love them. As an adult, he decided to write one for himself. Why? Because children are in themselves fear and loneliness and because they carry inside them something sensitive, fragile and intangible that somehow they protect.
