About the Author


Kat Zhang loves traveling to places both real and fictional—the former have better souvenirs, but the latter allow for dragons, so it’s a tough pick. A graduate of Vanderbilt University, she now spends her free time scribbling poetry, taking photographs, and climbing atop things she shouldn’t. You can learn about her travels, literary and otherwise, at KatZhangWriter.com.

Charlene Chua draws many things, from baos to dragons to, literally, the kitchen sink. When she is not drawing, she enjoys playing or talking to her cats (they listen politely, most of the time). Charlene grew up in Singapore and now lives in Canada. Her favorite bao are “char siu” bao!
