Peter Hinckley is the author of numerous books for kids and families. He lives in California with his wife and their family. Olga Zakharova (a.k.a., FaveteArt) is a self-taught illustrator and letterer with two bachelor's degrees that have nothing to do with art. Olga was born in Moscow, Russia, but moved to Latvia to find some peace and quiet. She now lives in an eco-village in the forest with her husband. Surrounded by nature on a daily basis, she finds inspiration in organic shapes and the perfect imperfections of the world. Her style is a mix of playful forms and cute characters drawn by hand and then digitized. When she is not working on illustrations, she can be found sleeping or being a doorwoman for her cats.
