Sora's white cloud is a modern "Red Balloon" - a flight of fancy and vehicle for a child's wonderful imagination.
Felicia Hoshino is an award winning artist. Her previous book A Place Where Sunflowers Grow won the 2007 Jane Addams Children's Book Award, 2007 International Reading Association "Notable," and San Francisco Chronicle's Best Books of 2006.
Felicia Hoshino was born in San Francisco, California where she continues to live with her family. As a student at City College of San Francisco, she enrolled in as many art classes as she could find, from figure drawing and ceramics to illustration and graphic design. Upon deciding to make art her career, she continued her education at California College of the Arts, where she earned a BFA in Illustration.
Felicia’s prize-winning illustrations can now be seen in children’s magazines Cricket, Spider and Ladybug and in children’s books such as Little Sap and Monsieur Rodin and A Place Where Sunflowers Grow, both accepted into the Society of Illustrator’s The Original Art exhibition. Her most recent book is My Dog Teny, published by Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California.
In addition to creating mixed-media images for children’s books and magazines, she enjoys illustrating children’s portraiture, cooking with her husband and decorating the walls at home with art created by her son and daughter. Visit her website at felishino.com.
