About the Author
Buffalo, NY native Alliah L. Agostini writes to spread joy, truth, and to illuminate the breadth of childhood experiences. Alliah is the award-winning author of a number of books for young readers including: The Juneteenth Story, BIG TUNE, Oprah Winfrey: A Little Golden Book Biography, A Juneteenth Celebration Cookbook, and more. She resides in New Jersey with her husband and two children, and has an A.B. and an M.B.A. from Harvard. Sawyer Cloud loves sunny days and music. Children's books she has illustrated include Jade Braves the Dark, Dear Mama's Loving Arms, Our Favourite Things, Earthbred, and Under the Mango Tree. If not drawing, she would be singing out loud in her room wearing her favorite fairy costume, and sharing the moment with her online friends. She lives in Madagascar with her family and two pets, Arya the dog and Potter the cat. Her dream is to travel and share her stories with the world.
