Presentations: Shirin Yim Bridges comes from a family of writers and artists. Her first book, Ruby's Wish, was named one of the Best Children’s Books of 2002 by Publishers Weekly, and won the Ezra Jack Keats awards for Best Writer and Best Illustrator in 2003. It is on several state reading lists, has been translated into six languages, and is now in its ninth edition. Shirin’s second book, The Umbrella Queen, made TIME/CNN’s Top 10 Lists 2008: Best Children’s Books, and was also named one of the Best Children’s Books of 2008 by the Bank Street College of Education. The Umbrella Queen has been translated into Chinese and Japanese. Her third book, Mary Wrightly So Politely, will be published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. In addition to being head goose at Goosebottom Books, Shirin wrote all six books in Goosebottom’s first series, The Thinking Girl’s Treasury of Real Princesses. (She’s not doing that again! From now on, many geese will be helping her!) Shirin has lived in many countries around the world, as is reflected in her writing — Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, and England. She was educated in the United States and now nests in California.
