Selina Alko, award-winning author and illustrator, focuses on stories of hope and inspiration and aims to show her readers an alternative viewpoint. Publisher’s Weekly writes, ““Alko (is) among the most visually eloquent promoters of junior-sized urbanism.” Selina uses mixed-media art to give life to her words and the words of other authors. Her books include Can I Touch Your Hair?, Why Am I Me?, The Case for Loving, and Two Friends.
