Fifi is originally from Taiwan where she did a BA in Landscape Architecture Design. She followed this with an MA in Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Since graduating, she has won Bronze in the Macmillan Prize, merit in the iJungle Illustration Awards and has also been shortlisted for the AOI Worlds Illustration Award. She has an eye for humour and characterisation and loves to observe people. When not people watching, she likes to watch her hamster and drink Japanese Green Tea Lattes. She likes the rain because it reminds her of the UK, and talks to herself when she draws!
The third book from highly talented newcomer Fifi Kuo, this is an irresistible tribute to the joy of drawing. On each page a group of lively little boys and girls have fun with different types of illustration – finger painting, using felt tips and paints, making collages, even sewing. The message is clear – everyone can draw, creativity and self-expression are for us all, and it’s fun. The compositions are different on every page and there are separate little stories to follow throughout. A joyful read certain to inspire creativity.
Shortlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize 2019 | Penguins are popular subjects for picture books, but even I Can Fly stands out for sheer charm and emotional impact. Little Penguin longs to fly and believes he can, even though everyone explains he can’t, including his dad. Only when he falls into the water does he discover what penguins can really do, and his dad is at his side. The theme of valuing what we have is always important and Kuo’s pencil drawings are quite simply superb, catching every emotion so that we understand exactly what Little Penguin is feeling, as well as what it would be like to fly through the water. Gorgeous.
Panda and Penguin love their old sofa - but when the springs poke through and the cover tears - they realise it is time to go shopping! They look at all sorts of sofas - too big, too small, too hard, too soft and even too `arty'! And, of course, they end up with their `perfect' sofa.
