Author Biography

Emma Shevah is Thai and Irish (which probably makes her Thairish), and was born and raised in London. She lives in Brighton with half of her four children, their speedy tortoise and a kamikaze hamster. Emma runs the Literary Club at New York University in London and teaches English at Francis Holland School. She is the author of the Bloomsbury Young Reader Hello, Baby Mo!, as well as middle-grade novels including Dream On, Amber and How to Save the World with a Chicken and an Egg. Sarah Demonteverde is a Filipino-American illustrator and designer currently based in California. Having roots in the multicultural community of Southern California, Sarah grew up loving music and dance, playing classical guitar and performing as a Polynesian dancer throughout her younger years. When she's not illustrating or dancing, you can find her exploring botanical gardens, searching for her next foodie joint or spending time with her big family,
