Jan Brzechwa (1898-1966), the author, was a;Polish poet and author, known mostly for his contribution to children's literature. He was born Jan Victor Lesman;to a Polish family of Jewish descent.His first set of poems for children;Tancowala igla z nitka ("Danced the needle with the thread") was published in 1937. Among his most popular works is Chrzaszcz(The Beetle), a poem proverbial for the hardest-to-pronounce phrase in Polish literature even for adult native Polish speakers. Its first line "W Szczebrzeszynie chrzaszcz brzmi w trzcinie" (In the town of Szczebrzeszyn a beetle buzzes in the reeds) is the best known Polish tongue-twister, in which almost all of the consonants make distinct buzzing;sounds. Many of Brzechwa's texts have been translated into English by Walter Whipple, but as of 2004 they have yet to be published.
