The incredibly talented Sun Hsin-Yu was such a prodigy, she was sent to college on a full scholarship to study fine art. Yet, after graduation, she moved on not to education but into commercial design, and in 1998 she began engaging in creative work as a side project only. After ten years of submitting projects to the Hsin-Yi Children’s Literature Award prize committee, her first award came in 2008, for the wordless picture book The Day Trip. From then on, recognition increased, and she won several prizes in Taiwan and abroad, including the 2015 Bologna Ragazzi Award in non-fiction. Her best-known works are all pure illustrated stories, including Traveling Around Paris, Traveling Around Hong Kong, Going Home, and others.
