More Awesome Asian Americans

by Phil Amara, Oliver Chin
Illustrated by Juan Calle

"We covered such a range, and I'm glad we did it compendium. As a teacher, I think we created two essential volumes on a myriad of Asian-American personalities. It really runs the gamut from scientists to influencers. They're wonderful reference books for the contemporary student, packed both with visuals and information." - Co-author Phil Amara, interviewed on AsianAmericanBooks.com

The Woollyhoodwinks vs. the Dark Patch

Created by Jeff Root and Scott Runcorn

"The artwork in the book is perhaps my favorite thing of all, a blend of traditional illustration and fabric crafts that have been photo-shopped in. It has a warmth and depth to it that I find very appealing. I have a huge addiction to crafting and that this story is born from five hand made stuffies is really inspiring to me, as a crafter, writer and mother." - GeekMom
