Taeeun Yoo received the Founders Award—for the most promising new talent of the year—from the Society of Illustrators for her debut picture book The Little Red Fish, for which Publishers Weekly in a starred review raved, “exhilarating visual images . . . shutting the book feels like awakening from a dream.” She also illustrated stunning new covers for Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time quintet.

If you were a young witch, who had not yet flown,And the dark night sky held a round yellow moonand the moon shone her light on the silent broomand the dark cat beside you crooned, Soar,would you too begin to cry,because of your longing to fly?Only a witch can fly.
