About the Author

Christy Mihaly has written more than 25 children's books, mostly nonfiction. She has degrees in policy studies, environmental studies and law from Dartmouth College and the University of California, Berkeley. She lives with her family in Vermont, where she enjoys the inspiration of the changing seasons and the endless varieties of New England precipitation.

Mariona Cabassa is a native of Catalonia, Spain, who has illustrated over 80 children's books. She studied at art school in Barcelona, followed by further research in Strasbourg, France. Her many subsequent years of working as an illustrator, painter, installation maker and tattoo artist reflect her fascination with form and her desire to explore different palettes. Mariona's technique combines water-based paints, pencils and a digital touch to create rich and detailed illustrations, bursting with color and movement.


★ "This intriguing, oversized title combines science and story to explore water in all its forms . . . [Mihaly] addresses readers directly, with respect for their capacity. Thoughtful, engaging design and lively illustrations add further appeal. Oceanic in scope -- but clear and refreshing" - Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"I am diving right into this book and it's making a big splash. Each page invites further learning with flaps to explore and lift throughout. I love that woven throughout this book are 8 stories from out the world celebrating and emphasizing the importance of clean and flowing water sources" - Jesica Sweedler DeHart, Neill Public Library
