About the Author

Isol is an Argentine author and illustrator of children's books whose career arose from her passion for comic book artistry, literature and the visual arts. She has been nominated for the Astrid Lindgren Award, has been selected twice as a finalist for the Hans Christian Andersen Award and has won a Golden Apple at the Biennial of Illustration Bratislava. Her delightful leporello, Tener un patito es u´til (It's Useful to Have a Duck), was chosen by AIGA as one of its "50 Books/50 Covers" for concept and design, and it was also named one of "Los mejores libros para nin os y jo´venes 2008" (The best books for children and youth 2008) by Venezuela's Banco del Libro. She has also written and illustrated Petit, the Monster and Beautiful Griselda, and she illustrated Doggy Slippers by Jorge Luja´n. Her books are highly acclaimed by reviewers and have been published in Argentina, Mexico, Spain, France, Canada, and the US. Isol is also an advertising illustrator, a professional singer, a comic book writer, and an active blogger.


Long-listed for the Astrid Lindgren Prize, 2013

"Nocturne is another brilliant example of the highly imaginative and engaging nature of Isol's work in children's literature (and is another strong example of why her work has been nominated twice for the international Hans Christian Anderson Award for children's literature)." --CM Magazine

"Isol provides fodder for sweet (and sometimes not-so-sweet) dreams in a beguiling book built around glow-in-the-dark technology." --Publishers' Weekly
