About the Author

Izzi Rusch chased the northern lights with their mother Elizabeth Rusch and was so inspired by the experience that it led to cowriting their first book. Izzi attends school in Portland, Oregon, and is passionate about science.
Elizabeth Rusch is an author, editor, teacher, and speaker, and has published several award-winning books for children and adults. She channels her passion for science, history, art, and nature through her stories and hopes to share those interests with her readers. Elizabeth lives in Portland, Oregon.
Cedar Lee discovered art at a young age, selling her first paintings at age 12 and holding her first solo show at 16. Today her work can be found internationally in galleries, private collections, and even on buildings. She finds most of her inspiration from nature and enjoys painting in her backyard studio in Portland, Oregon.

Reviews

"A young girl and her mother chase the aurora borealis. . . the vast majority of science facts are found only in the dense, text-heavy backmatter, which explains the science behind eclipses and auroras, describes how to hunt for them and the best conditions for seeing them, and provides further resources. Lee's nature scenes can be luminous, the colors at their best seeming to glow on the pages and beckon readers in. . . may have readers itching to start hunts of their own."--Kirkus Reviews
"Science facts are straightforwardly conveyed . . . Lee's acrylic illustrations show swirling Northern Lights and birch trees below bathed in deep purple and blue luminosity. Back matter provides further scientific information, along with a 'Step-by-Step Guide to Aurora Hunting.' VERDICT A STEM-worthy addition to collections."--School Library Journal
