About The Illustrators

Joëlle Dreidemy can’t remember the first time she started drawing…maybe the first time she picked up a pencil! She spent her childhood among books from Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake, Tony Ross, Ralph Steadman, and others who influenced her style. Joelle studied art at the famous Emile Cohl School in Lyon, France, where she met fantastic and motivating teachers like Yves Got and Jean Claverie. She now lives in Paris illustrating projects for French, English, American, and Korean publishers. When not drawing, Joelle practices karate, plays piano, and goes to museums and the movies.

Mike Moran is an artist who really likes baseball, brussels sprouts, playing guitar, and being left-handed. In addition to illustrating children’s books, Mike has had his work appear in magazines, newspapers, animation, apps, and greeting cards. Mike and his family live in New Jersey.
