Sepideh Sarihi was born in 1988 in Iran. She studied screenwriting and dramaturgy in Tehran, where she later worked for various magazines and in children's television. She has lived in Germany since 2012 and is studying fine art at the Bauhaus University, Weimar.
Julie Völk was born in Vienna, Austria, and studied illustration at the University of Applied Sciences. Her clear, delicate style combines realism with fantasy, which gives her illustrations a highly original atmosphere. She now lives and works just outside Vienna.

★ "A gentle story about change, home, and the hope life hands us when we open our hearts to receive it." -- Amina Chaudhri, Booklist, starred review
"Sarihi's simple, heartfelt story is equally matched by Völk's unfussy yet evocative illustrations....A charming tale exploring themes of change, migration, and resilience told from a child's point of view." -- Kirkus Reviews
