Ranjit Singh is a British children’s book author of East Indian heritage. A financial professional by day, he is fascinated by how a picture book – like a balance sheet – can present a story with astounding brevity and depth of expression. Working in a large city with a variety of people with different backgrounds, he uses words to reach out and inspire people. He enjoys reading, especially biographies about ordinary people who have achieved extraordinary things.
Mehrdokht Amini is an Iranian-British children’s book illustrator living in England. She graduated with a degree in Graphic Design from Tehran University and has worked as an illustrator for both educational and mainstream publishers ever since.
She started her career in Iran while still studying at university, working on various projects for children’s magazines and books. After moving to England in 2004 she continued working with publishers all around the world. Her picturebook Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns written by Hena Khan, received high praise and was selected for the 2013 ALSC notable children’s booklist. In 2016, her book Chicken in the Kitchen won Best Book at the Children’s Africana Book Awards, was put on the White Ravens Honour List, and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Mehrdokht was chosen as one of only fifteen UK entrants in the prestigious Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava 2017.
Mehrdokht loves working with publishers who are interested in cultural diversity because it gives her an excellent opportunity to undertake a close study of different cultures and communities, gain a better understanding of those cultures and appreciate people of different backgrounds to her own.

DAYDREAMS VS. REALITY
Posters come to life, the weather takes an extreme turn, jumbled words turn into plank walking adventures, and a very special guest shows up. But where does it all lead?
In this book, daydreams and reality have become a little blurred. Luckily, we have a trusted friend and tour guide to help us through.
What do you see when you look at a classroom, the city, or a line of trees? Nimesh see’s things a little differently. To Nimesh the world is full of humour, awe and excitement, and with Mehrdokht Amini’s help, he’s about to show you why.
