Samuil Yakovlevich Marshak (Russian: Самуи́л Я́ковлевич Марша́к; 1887-1964) is a famous Russian and Soviet writer, translator and children's poet. His popularity in Russian children's literature is comparable to that of Milne in Britain or Dr Seuss in the United States; his fairy tales are among the very first literary texts young readers encounter.
