Anna Kim has a B.A. in psychology from Wellesley College and is a classically-trained pianist. She grew up doodling around the edges of her notebooks and any loose scraps of paper she could find. Anna hopes to create lovable characters and enduring stories, who inspire children and become part of their lives. She lives in a quiet part of New York City, where she can see trees and hear birds. Her debut picture book Danbi Leads the School Parade will be published by Penguin Books for Young Readers (Viking, July 2020).
