My Footprints

Bao Phi (Author) Basia Tran (Illustrator)


Every child feels different in some way, but Thuy feels "double different." She is Vietnamese American and she has two moms. Thuy walks home one winter afternoon, angry and lonely after a bully's taunts. Then a bird catches her attention and sets Thuy on an imaginary exploration. What if she could fly away like a bird? What if she could sprint like a deer, or roar like a bear? Mimicking the footprints of each creature in the snow, she makes her way home to the arms of her moms. Together, the three of them imagine beautiful and powerful creatures who always have courage - just like Thuy.

About the Author

Thi Bui was born in Vietnam and grew up in California and New York. Now all these places are a part of her. She draws and writes and teaches. She recently completed her first graphic novel, The Best We Could Do (Abrams, 2017), which is about her mother and father.
Basia Tran is a Polish-Vietnamese children's books and lifestyle illustrator, occasionally also working in music, animation, video games, and advertising. Her diverse work and interests are all connected by a common thread: her desire to tell stories that can make people laugh, teach them something new, or even bring them peace. In her free time, Basia is rock climbing, enjoying tea, and thinking about all there is to learn and explore in the universe - often all at the same time. She is currently based in her hometown Kraków, Poland.
