Gianna Marino is an American author and illustrator who has written over a dozen award-winning books, including Meet Me at the Moon, Too Tall Houses, Following Papa’s Song, Night Animals, Night Animals Need Sleep Too, and If I Had a Horse. Her stories are largely based on nature and animals, and follow the interpersonal relationships between animals as well as humans, and their surroundings. For We Will Live in this Forest Again, Gianna drew upon the tragic environmental impact of the 2017 Northern Californian forest fires to deliver a powerful message of ecological hope. She is also the New York Times bestselling illustrator of Don’t Let Them Disappear, written by Chelsea Clinton. Meet Me at the Moon was chosen for distribution by Dolly Parton’s The Imagination Library in 2012.
