About the Author
Dezh Azaad is an Afghan writer who's been a refugee his whole life. He lives in Germany, where he teaches Persian to refugee children and leads seminars for teens and young adults on social change, race, and the climate crisis. Azaad loves tinkering with electronics and cooking meals that take five hours to make and five minutes to eat. Visit him online at dezhazaad.com. Nan Cao is a New York-based illustrator. Her work is inspired by surrealistic imagery and her daily life in the big city. When she is not drawing, Cao loves to hang out with the squirrels in the park, daydream under the sun, or get lost in her book collection. She has worked with clients such as Johns Hopkins Magazine, Anorak Magazine, Link NYC, Bulletin Magazine, Spectrum, and Washingtonian magazine. Cao holds an MFA in illustration as visual essay from the School of Visual Arts. Her work has been recognized by American Illustration, Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts, AOI, 3x3, and Creative Quarterly.
Reviews
"Inspired by Azaad's own life, this powerful, lyrical tale speaks to the importance of sharing, learning, caring, and other values. A love letter to family, culture, and home."--Kirkus
"Despite the cartoonish rendering of the characters' faces, the bold colors and movement in the illustrations help the narrative establish a loving family that will thrive because of their close bond."--Booklist
