Wen-Hua Wang lives in the rural village of Puli, Taiwan. He teaches at a school surrounded by mountains. Wang is the recipient of the first prize at the Mandarin Daily News Reed Pipe Awards, and received the Golden Tripod Awards for his books The Principal Cello and The Possibility School’s Mission: Love Earth.Wang’s favorite season is autumn. In the cool autumn nights when the moon lights the skies, story worms seem to come into his head one by one. They line up standing in the moonlight, rushing to tell their own story.
Wang is busiest during this time, he quickly brews coffee, burns mosquito coils, and opens up dozens of files to take down these stories. He wishes he had 16 hands and eight keyboards to type up all the stories told by the story worms in his head. After so many years, he’s listened to the stories of these story worms, and has written many great books.

Hong-Yu Chen received a Master’s degree from Kingston University in Great Britain. She is from Taichung, but has been living a nomadic lifestyle in Taipei for over a decade. Chen once worked as an assistant for television programs, as well as a producer for cartoons, but her passion lies in illustrations. In 2012, before the end of the world, Chen decided to move South with her two cats to focus on drawing. She now resides in the sunny South with paintbrush in one hand and a child in the other, busy with life as an illustrator and a mother.
Amann Wang likes to listen to stories, read stories, and sometimes lives in stories. When she has time, she enjoys walking around, sometimes collecting sunshine, old houses, old trees that couldn’t be older, old wives pushing a bunch of groceries, darkness-covered hillsides… she collects and stores all of these in her mind and nurtures them into beautiful, fantastic dreams. Wang is currently a full-time illustrator, trying hard to dream!
Wang’s works had been selected by Bologna's Illustrators Exhibition three times(2006, 2015, 2016). In 2012, she won the Golden Tripod Awards for Little Monkey Finds Friends and Meteors Have No Ears. In 2013, she won the award once more for her book Principal Cello.
