About the author (2020)

The art of "telling stories" is a treasure that has been passed down to us by our ancestors. The practice of reading creative words can bring out the laughter, pleasures, and smiles of enjoyment. When I was a child, my sister and I always asked our mom to read a story before going to bed. It was the best way for us to fall asleep. My dad built us a bookshelf using cement blocks and a board. We decorated it with a small lamp, that provided just enough light to read our stories. As my children grew, I remember the fun we shared in reading stories aloud while also seeking books that related to people of color. As each of my children grew, I watched the bookshelves expand as they continued the treasures of reading.Now as a grandmother and an author, I wanted to extend the messages that are stored on bookshelves to children ages 4+ to understanding the riches found in reading. My goal is to contribute family-oriented books showing the interactive involvement of all generations as they encounter these experiences, showing identifiable characters with recognizable illustrations and images.

About Ian DaleFreelance illustrator based in Los Angeles, California.My work tends towards richly-detailed digital paintings that live somewhere between animation and photorealism. I enjoy creating characters that come from around our world, and that inhabit worlds of imagination.I'm at home with conceptual thinking and communication, and I love to transform complex ideas into clear and appealing images. My extensive background in design and animation also helps me to see the big picture when illustrating for a variety of projects.Born into a multiracial family, I tend to gravitate towards diverse and multicultural characters in my illustration. I try to bring a global perspective to my work, and love to tell the stories of those who may be less visible in our world.At the University of Southern California I studied traditional painting and drawing. These days, I'm constantly reading and learning new ideas and techniques, with heavy influence from the local animation and art communities.I have enjoyed collaborating with companies on a freelance basis since 2007, working with clients in publishing, web/interactive, education, religious and non-profit arenas.Represented by DEBORAH WOLFE LTD // illustrationOnline.com
