Ana Juan

Ana Juan's first foray into children's books was as illustrator for the picture book Frida, which won her rave reviews. Publisher's Weekly praised Ana's playful style, saying "Floating figures, fantastical creatures and celestial bodies with human features cavort across the pages." Frida was named an American Library Association Notable Book and an Americas Award honor book. It was honored as a Parenting Magazine Best Book of 2002. And it was featured in the Society of Illustrators Original Art Exhibition.

Ana Juan's art has appeared on the cover of The New Yorker, on book and album jackets, on film festival posters and in several European magazines. The Night Eater is her first work as a writer. She lives in Madrid, Spain.
