Shelley Johannes is the author-illustrator of the Beatrice Zinker, Upside Down Thinker chapter-book series. A former architectural designer, she has a fondness for tracing paper, process, and accidental discoveries. She and her family live in Michigan with two feathered friends, Max and Alex, who make every day sunny and birdy. More Than Sunny is her debut picture book.
"The playful rhymes flow easily, beg to be read aloud, and would work well as creative writing prompts in elementary classrooms... A bouncy and buoyant take on the changing seasons." — Kirkus Reviews
"The rhythmic prose, shown in a crayon-esque lettering, traces the siblings’ passing days and the seasons... Dynamic art rendered in pencil and mixed media on tracing paper and finished digitally matches the text’s energy in this charming seasonal perusal." — Publishers Weekly
