Charlene Chua grew up in Singapore and immigrated to Canada as an adult. They have illustrated almost twenty picture books, including Hug?, Going Up, Raindrops to Rainbow, and Amy Wu and the Perfect Bao.

Charlene Chua draws many things, from baos to dragons and everything in-between. When they are not drawing, they enjoy cooking, reading, and playing with their cats. Their favourite baos are still char siu baos, and their favourite dumplings are air-fryer wontons!
