About the Author

Cindy Derby is an author and illustrator of many critically acclaimed books for children, including Outside In, written by Deborah Underwood, which received a 2021 Caldecott Honor as well as five starred reviews. NPR has called her illustrations "mesmerizing," and the New York Times regards her work as "profound...alive...and wonderfully out of control." Cindy's books have been translated all over the world and have also been awarded a Golden Kite Honor for Picture Book Illustration, a Crystal Kite Award, and international awards such as France's 2022 Philosophia Jeunesse prize and the Alpaca Award (bronze medal) in Japan's Kembuchi Picture Book Awards. She lives in San Francisco.


★ "Tackling persistence and much more, this wryly empathic story from Derby thoughtfully models an instance of learning to respect autonomy and offer meaningful support." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Melding lovely art with toddlerlike determination, this amalgamation of ice castles and vibrant butterflies soars." --Kirkus Reviews

"Derby.... crafts a relatable tale of ingenuity and perseverance. Her soft-edged, wobbly-lined artwork, rendered in watercolors and gouache, gives the story a warmth despite the snowy landscape, and kids will enjoy seeing the little protagonist come out on top (of the world)." --Booklist

"Reminiscent of a human toddler struggling against the odds, the headstrong cub uses his energy and strong will to accomplish what he set out to do in this charming, effective picture book adventure." --School Library Journal
