Kobi Yamada is a New York Times best-selling author, the creator of many inspiring books, and the president of Compendium, a company of amazing people doing amazing things. Kobi feels grateful to share his life with his gregarious family in the Pacific Northwest where he can hope, dream, create--and yes, even fail. Elise Hurst is an Australian fine artist, illustrator and author, specializing in books for children. Her most recent book was the illustrated edition of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, and Girl on Wire by Lucy Estela, which was shortlisted for the Children's Book Council of Australia 2019 Awards. She lives in a house full of books and paintings. From her studio, where black pens and oil paints spill across the desk, magical worlds leap into being. Like something out of Beatrix Potter or Narnia, her friends are rabbits and bears, lions and tigers--and they all have a story to share.
