Lee & Low Books is the largest multicultural children’s book publisher in the United States. I am proud to make my kidlit debut with them, illustrating Helena Ku Rhee‘s The Turtle Ship to be released this summer 2018. The picture book is loosely based on the legendary admiral Yi Sunsin. The fictional story is about a young boy of 16th century Korea. Inspired by his pet turtle and motivated by a wish to travel the world, he helps his king build one of the strongest battleships in history.
