Vivienne To is a New Zealand-based illustrator and artist who has designed several animated feature films and created illustrations for many middle grade books. When she isn't drawing, Vivienne can be found knitting on the couch, watching cute dogs at the local park, or reading in the children's section of the library.
"Colorful descriptions will send curious readers searching for images of the paintings mentioned, while discussions of art as a vehicle for the expression of truth and beauty add depth to a plot . . . [Vivienne] To's expressive, delicately rendered illustrations enhance the text."--Kirkus Reviews

"A delightful adventure, excellent for reading aloud. This book will make you want to study Van Gogh and get out the paintbrushes!"--Sarah Mackenzie, founder and host of Read-Aloud Revival and author of The Read-Aloud Family

"This carefully composed story is certain to captivate and delight your creative kids."--S. D. Smith, author of the Green Ember series

"Beneath the Swirling Sky adds to the literary canon that blends art and mystery, such as From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and Chasing Vermeer. An art adventure woven with truth and beauty."--Megan Saben, associate editor for Redeemed Reader and author of Something Better Coming

"What a timely tale of uplifting the good and slow work of art-making. Carolyn Leiloglou sets out to restore humanity's fractured connection with history's great painters, and she pulls young readers in so close to historic works of art that they can almost smell the paint."--Joe Sutphin, illustrator of the Wingfeather Saga, Little Pilgrim's Progress, and the official graphic novelization of Watership Down

"A truly absorbing tale that drew me into the colorful and mysterious world, kindling my imagination--and heart--all along the way."--Scott James, author of The Sower, The Littlest Watchman, The Expected One, and Where Is Wisdom?

"A captivating story that paints relatable childhood struggles against a background of brilliant adventure."--James D. Witmer, managing editor of Story Warren and author of A Year in the Big Old Garden and The Strange New Dog
