About the Author

Carolijn Leisink is from the Netherlands, where she works as a drama teacher and writer. The stories she hears from her students, who come from many cultural backgrounds, inspire her. That's why diversity is always at the center of her books. Children who are introduced to each other's cultures at a young age have more sympathy for each other later in life. Books can serve as excellent examples, bridging cultures and bringing people together.Maruga Koops spends most of her days drawing; it's what she loves to do most! She especially likes to draw for small children and feels it's important that children see themselves in the world. Maruga grew up in a village in the Netherlands and felt unrecognized in stories as a child. This is why she emphasizes diversity and inclusion in her illustrations. When not drawing, Maruga spends time with her husband and two daughters, takes walks, listens to podcasts, watches films, or makes homemade stamps. Her black cat, Chester, keeps her company while she works.
