Dr. EUGENE TRIVIZAS has published many books on literature, and he is one of Greece's leading writers for children. He has produced more than a hundred books, all of them currently in print, and he has received more than twenty national and international literary prizes and awards.
Much of Trivizas' work has been transferred to the stage and serialized for television as well as the radio. He is currently the most frequently performed writer of plays for children in Greece. In 1986 his play The Carecrow was placed on the International Board on Books for Young People's "Honour List", and awarded a Diploma for excellence in writing,
His first book for children published in the English language was The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig (1993). The Economist wrote about this book that "only the most talented of writers can tamper with a classic nursery tale and produce something almost as amusing and thought-provoking as the original." The Three Little Wolves reached the second place in the American best seller list for picture books, has won many distinctions (including A.L.A. notable book and A.S.L.J. best book, and the "Parents Choice Amazing Accomplishment Award") and has been translated in fifteen languages.
