I could talk about Kazakhstan from morning till night, but my family wouldn't understand me. As a result, I decided to illustrate the Kazakh national costumes, the steppe, animals, yurts, and other things in my book.

We had fun talking about writing, illustrating and LOTS of book questions. So [grateful] I had some Kazakhstan treasures there to keep their eyes busy. Everyone loved the Kazakhstan designs that inspired my first book.
