Cindy Wume is a freelance illustrator from Tainan, Taiwan. After finishing her bachelor degree of foreign languages and literatures, she came to the UK to study MA Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art in 2014, having a strong passion for drawing and illustration. Gouache, linear, marker, ink, dip-pen and coloured pencils are the main materials she uses for her artwork. She typically draws inspiration from her observations of humanity, a sense of place and her own imagination for her book projects.
The Best Sound in the World is her first picture book.
October 2018 Debut of the Month | | What’s the best sound in the world? Ray the little lion is determined to find out, because he thinks that will help him become a famous musician (he plays the violin). He spends hours bottling beautiful sounds – the plip-plop of rain in the forest, the tweeting of birds in the mountains, the chitter-chatter of the market – but just can’t decide. His neighbour little lemur Jemmy tries to help, but Roy is just annoyed when Jemmy dances to his music, or claps in time. Indeed, it takes him the whole book to realise that Jemmy’s friendship helps him make the best sounds ever. It’s a lovely story, beautifully told and Cindy Wume’s illustrations are gorgeous. A charming and original picture book that should become a real favourite.
