Muon Thi Van - Author

Mượn Thị Văn is the author of several picture books, including the award-winning In a Village by the Sea.

Mượn can often be found thinking about stories while sipping lukewarm coffee on her front porch; or writing drafts of stories while hunched over her smudgy laptop in her dusty car; or revising stories (mentally) while ambling through her creaky neighborhood eucalyptus groves.

Her first book with Kids Can Press, One Is a Lot (Except When It's Not), arrives fall 2019. In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews praised it, saying it “creatively explores concepts of a lot and a little, enough and not enough, through a seemingly simple story ... One unique picture book with much to say equals quite a lot.”

Mượn hopes you'll stick around and grow up, and down, and inside and out, with her and her books.
