Kerascoët, a husband-and-wife team, are the illustrators of MALALA'S MAGIC PENCIL, written by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, which was highly acclaimed and a New York Times bestseller. Publishers Weekly raved: "Kerascoët's bright, reportorial watercolors match the text's directness and sincerity, adding gold embellishments to give Malala's hopes and optimism a radiant physicality. The Malala in these pages is both approachable and extraordinary." Kerascoët are also the illustrators of the picture book I WALK WITH VANESSA, which received three starred reviews and was named The Best Picture Book of 2018 that Champions Kindness by Parents Magazine. Most recently, Kerascoët illustrated THE BUG GIRL: A TRUE STORY, written by and about Sophie Spencer, recalling her experience as a 7-year-old who was bullied for loving bugs—until hundreds of women scientists rallied around her. Kerascoët live in France.
