Author(s): Lani Yamamoto
St na, by award-winning author and illustrator Lani Yamamoto, tells a heart-warming story of friendship and love amid the cold of winter. Those who live in cooler climates, like the acclaimed author herself, know all too well the energy and ingenuity that goes into staying warm during the coldest months. In the quirky but realistic world of St na, the titular character thinks up brilliant invention after brilliant invention to stay clear of the chilly outside world. She soon realizes, though, that to keep warm will take more than ingenuity, logic and science--it takes action and friendship. St na has won multiple awards in Iceland and was also nominated for the prestigious Nordic Council Literature Award as one of the best Scandinavian children's books.
Lani Yamamoto is the author and illustrator of Albert, a series of philosophy books for children. Stina was nominated for the 2014 Nordic Prize for Children's and Young People's Literature, winner of the 2014 Fjoruverdlaunin Women's Literary prize for Children's Books and 2014 Dimmalimm Icelandic Illustration Award.
