About the Author
Sophia N. Lee grew up in the Philippines. She wanted to be many things growing up: doctor, teacher, ballerina, ninja, crime-fighting international spy, wizard, time traveler, journalist, and lawyer. She likes to think she can be all these things and more through writing. She is the author of Soaring Saturdays; What Things Mean, which won a Scholastic Asian Book Award's grand prize; Holding On; and Lolo's Sari-sari Store. Learn more about her at SophiaLeeWrites.com.

Isabel Roxas is the author-illustrator of The Adventures of Team Pom: Squid Happens. She was born in the Philippines and raised on luscious mangoes, old wives' tales, and monsoon moons. She learned so much from her lolas Fe and Venancia: how to shine the floor with a coconut, navigate a palengke (wet market), and make a scrumptious bowl of ginataan. Learn more about Isabel online at StudioRoxas.com or on Instagram @StudioRoxas.
Reviews
"Illustrations by Roxas awash in saturated greens and blues with bright orange and yellow splashes, incorporate a motif of musical notes into images of familial intimacy across time, reinforcing the message of embracing unwavering love through music and memory."--Publishers Weekly
"The gentle text will tug at heartstrings and resonate with children who are experiencing similar situations...Bittersweet and joyous, this picture book is a positive treatment of a grandparent living with Alzheimer's or dementia. An excellent choice for libraries."--School Library Journal "12/23/2022"
