And to this day, she still puts too many marshmallows in her hot chocolate, like some other storytellers we know. She lives in the Bay Area with her husband and daughter.Kaylani Juanita is an illustrator. As a child, Kaylani and her sisters and friends would pretend to be pro-wrestlers, mermaids, doctors, and royalty, living in an endless universe of different realms.

"This humorous picture book about imaginative play, collaboration and friendship will resonate with any child who may find it challenging to accommodate a friend or sibling's ideas into their own carefully devised game. It demonstrates that - with a little give and take - a game shared can be double the fun. A different typeface is used for each character, making it easy to identify their voices. The energetic illustrations in warm, earthy tones perfectly reflect the chaos of children at play." -- Booktrust
