Mia Wenjen enjoys boxing, gardening and yoga. Because Japanese cucumbers are not available where she lives, she sprouted them from seed and convinced her boxing gym friends to grow them as well. She lives in Boston, USA, with her husband, three children and Golden Retriever. She blogs on parenting, education and children’s books at PragmaticMom.com and runs the nonprofit Multicultural Children’s Book Day.

Robert Sae-Heng is an illustrator and artist living in London, UK, with his fantastically large cheese plant, Elvis. He has Mexican and Thai origins, and spent his childhood on a tiny farm in Mexico. He first began using imagery to communicate because he spent his early years unable to hear. Robert now works with mixed media, combining hand-drawn elements with a digital finish.
