Yao-Pin Chou studied journalism but later stumbled into the world of children’s literature and translation of Japanese children's books. She likes to observe the far corners in society, discover themes that are related to children's lives and create stories out of them. She hopes that children can learn more about themselves, the people around them and the world through these stories, so they can live better lives.
Chou is the recipient of numerous awards including the Golden Tripod Awards Notable Children's Book, the United Daily News Best Children’s Literature Awards, the Chiuko Modern Children’s Literature Award and the Good Books for Everyone Award Best Children’s Books of the Year, among others.
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.
