Spotlight on Anne Sibley O'Brien

Anne Sibley O’Brien’s parents were missionaries, and she grew up in Korea. She now lives in Maine and has illustrated all of Margy Burns Knight’s books and a number of other multicultural books, some of which she also authored. Some notable books include, Jouanah: A Hmong Cinderella, The Legend of Hong Kil Dong: The Robin Hood of Korea, and The Princess and the Beggar a Korean Folktale.
Her colorful illustrations are absolutely stunning, highly detailed, and accurately represent people from the cultures featured in the books.
