Yi-Ching Hsiao describes herself as an art teacher who likes to sleep like a bear. She likes to sing loudly when taking a bath, and to watch the clouds lying down, daydreaming. She likes reading books and listening to songs, as well as doodling. She loves lots and lots of people, and lots and lots of things. Above all, she likes to lie in the caves during the winter, dreaming like honey, and then weaving those dreams into fairy tales in hopes that everyone will like them as well.
Hsiao is the recipient of the Wu Chuo-liou Literary Prize, the Chiuko Modern Children’s Literature Award, and the Creative Literature Award of the Ministry of Culture.
Ginar Liu is a freelance illustrator. She has worked as a lecturer in the field of literary creation, and believes that there is no difference between adults and children in the world of illustration. Ginar feels that there are many opportunities for adventure in life, all one needs is courage and to believe in oneself. One could even find a revelation by opening a book, and discovering the fantasy of life. Take a look at Ginar's sketchbook at www.facebook.com/ginarginar.
