The famous children's writer Tatyana Ivanovna Aleksandrova was a real storyteller. She amazed readers with her stories that taught kindness, affectionate words and left a mark on the soul of every person.
Tatyana Aleksandrova was born on January 10, 1929 in Kazan. However, it so happened that her childhood passed in Moscow. Tatyana had a twin sister, Natasha. The girls often stayed at home only with a nanny. After all, my mother was a doctor. Therefore, she often had to stay overnight on duty. Dad worked as an engineer at a logging site. He was rarely at home, as he had to travel on business trips.
During the war, the writer worked as an educator. Then for the first time she composed an interesting story that the children really liked. This subsequently prompted her to enter the Institute of Cinematography at the Faculty of Arts. After training, she became a famous storyteller.
Tatiana Aleksandrova was also an artist. She often drew children, but so that they would sit quietly and not move, she would tell entertaining stories and tales thatthe children listened with pleasure.
The writer wrote like this all her life, until she became mortally ill. She never found out that her first book about brownie Kuzya was a huge success. The writer died on December 23, 1983 from a severe illness that they did not want to advertise.
Interesting facts from life
As described above, Tanya and her sister had a nanny named Tsareva Matryona Fyodorovna. It was she who replaced the girls' parents. Matryona often told Tanya and Natasha fairy tales and stories about goblin and brownies. She sang songs about these heroes and read poems. Therefore, Tanya, after her nanny, began to compose various stories herself.
When Tatyana Aleksandrova taught children how to draw, she asked them to paint landscapes calmly, not to be afraid of anyone or anything. To do this, she took the children to the forest to acquaint them with nature, birds and some animals.
Oddly enough, after several such trips, animals and birds began to get used to young artists.
Tatyana had a husband, Valentin Berestov. With him, she wrote many books that became famous over time.
However, at first the writer helped her husband and drew pictures for books, then he introduced her to his activities, and together they wrote the first book in 1973, en titled "Katya in a Toy City", which brought great success to the family.
As it turned out later, Tatyana Alexandrova was a wonderful author. Her biography is interesting, lively and touching. Very embarrassing to manyreaders that Tatyana could not rejoice when the cartoon about Kuzya according to her script was published.
The author's best books
There was a good and kind writer Tatyana Aleksandrova. The author's best books are the story "Katya in a Toy City" and "Kuzya Brownie".
Stories about brownies were easy for the author. However, she worked on the fairy tale for several years. After all, several memorable stories about fidget Kuzya were created, in which Tatyana Ivanovna Aleksandrova put her whole soul.
Then came the book "Toy Chest". Thanks to her, children learn to fantasize, imagine and create their own fascinating stories. In fact, the author has a lot of fairy tales and stories, but they are not as famous as the first two.
Tales of the Wise Professor
This is another wonderful book that appeared very recently (in 2010), although it was written a very long time ago. Therefore, the book "Tales of the Wise Professor" contains ancient traditions and rituals.
This book often mentions the Russian stove, goblin, brownies and kikimoras. The heroes of this book live in the modern world, albeit according to the old rules. Here you will read many interesting teasers, sayings or proverbs with meaning that teach children only good things. Tatyana Aleksandrova was a remarkable writer. The author's books are loved not only by children, but also by adults.
In each character, you can find similarities with your child, which attracts reading even more.
Writing a fairy tale about a brownieKuzyu
The first edition only accepted the introduction of the story. However, they decided that the title should not contain the word "brownie". As it turned out, this is a dubious word that no one knew. Also, they were not allowed to illustrate books, because Kuzya is a fictional character, and it is not known how he should look.
To make drawings for the story, it was necessary that the writer was a member of the Union of Artists, but she was not. Although she had a lot of experience in painting.
Due to some specific circumstances, the writer was not allowed to finalize her fairy tale. Therefore, when the fairy tale came out, Tatyana was not happy, because they did not remake the story very well and the character turned out to be more negative than positive.
Already after the death of the writer, three days after the funeral, she received a call. It was a big surprise for my husband. After all, they called from Soyuzmultfilm itself and asked Tatyana to write a script for them. Then Valentin Berestov wrote in memory of his wife the rest of the stories about the brownie Kuzya, which became very popular with children of any age.
There is a character in the fairy tale - the girl Natalya. Tatyana didn’t just call her that. The writer wanted to leave the memory of her beloved sister in the fairy tale, so she named the heroine after her.
Positive feedback from readers
Many people like Tatyana Alexandrova's fairy tales, short stories. Funny and kind adventures help children to better understand the author. After all, the writer wanted to open the world of kindness for the children, to help them understandthe essence of a brownie, his character and unique features.
Some mothers encourage children 4-5 years old to read the author's books. Together with the child they spend interesting time, present funny stories, laugh, joke. The author's books help children reason, draw conclusions and discuss what they read.
Without a doubt, there are people who don't like stories about Kuzka. Some parents claim that they are meaningless, the humor is wrong. Someone thinks that not only books, but also cartoons are bad.
Such people claim that they do not teach children anything smart. However, not everyone agrees with such conclusions, but each person has the right to a personal opinion. It can't be all right.
Some readers didn't like the pictures of the characters. They were sure that the children would be afraid of these illustrations. Take only one Kuzya, who was painted sloppy, dirty, fat and ugly. However, I am glad that not everyone thought so.
As mentioned above, Tatyana Ivanovna Alexandrova was a wonderful person, artist and author. Her biography touched many hearts. After all, it is a pity that the author was not appreciated at the right time, but only after her death they were able to understand what entertaining stories, fairy tales and novels are.
When the war ended, Tatyana was only about 13 years old. The most surprising thing is that at this age she worked as a kindergarten teacher. And as a child myself,raised children.
Tatyana's husband Valentin Berestov always supported his wife and helped in the author's work, as at that time he was a famous writer, who was loved by many readers. And after the death of his beloved wife, Valentine did everything to keep her memory in the hearts of many people.
