Holly Hatam is the illustrator of Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Paris Rosenthal's #1 New York Times bestseller Dear Girl, as well as other children's books. She uses a colorful, wacky mixed-media art approach to create her illustrations. Holly enjoys snuggling with her husband and kid, hugging trees, stocking her cupboard with tea, and burying her nose in a book, in addition to children's literature and graphic design. Her family and she live in Ontario, Canada. Visit her at hollyhatam.com and follow her on Twitter at @hollyhatamillustration.
