About the Author

SUZANNE DEL RIZZO began her career in picture books as the illustrator of the award-winning Skink on the Brink. She left scientific research to make children's books, creating illustrations with polymer clay/mixed media. Suzanne's author-illustrator debut, My Beautiful Birds, was a New York Times Notable Children's Book and Malka Penn Award for Human Rights in Children's Literature winner. Also the illustrator of the award-winning Sun Dog, Suzanne lives with her family in Oakville, Ontario.

Miki Sato is a Japanese-Canadian illustrator who uses a variety of different textures and materials to create three-dimensional images. Originally from Ottawa, she moved to Toronto to complete her degree in illustration from the Ontario College of Art and Design. Her first picture books are Golden Threads written by Suzanne Del Rizzo and Snow Days written by Deborah Kerbel, which won the Northern Lights Book Award and has been shortlisted for the 2020 IBBY Canada Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Canadian Picture Book Award. Other recent titles in the Weather Days collection include Sunny Days and Windy Days.
