About the Author
Tiffany Rose is a left handed illustrator and author. She is currently living and working in Paris, France. She's a lover of coffee, wanderlust, massive curly Afros, and children being their imaginative, quirky, free selves. She is a full time teacher, part time author-illustrator, and world traveler. Rose remembers what it was like as a brown child not seeing herself reflected in the books and characters she loved so dearly and has been inspired to create art and meaningful stories so that underrepresented children can see themselves in books. Pencil in hand, she's changing that percentage one illustration at a time. Find out more about Tiffany at asouthpawdraws.com.
