Join Brooklyn-based author and illustrator You Jung Byun for her only UK event at Ottie and the Bea on Sunday 12th August at 11am.

You Jung Byun will be live drawing and reading from her new book Millie’s Missing Yawn. There will also be colouring activities based around the theme of travel. Suitable for ages 3-5.

Millie’s Missing Yawn is 100% guaranteed to make your child yawn and get them feeling sleepy. Millie has lost her yawn, and she can’t get to sleep without it. First of all she looks close to home – but her pet dog and cat can’t help – then she goes a little further afield. The Statue of Liberty hasn’t seen her yawn, neither has the Mona Lisa, nor the penguins at the south pole, and the rabbits on the moon certainly haven’t… Eventually Millie has to head back home, but as she lies back in bed and remembers all the wonderful friends she has made, her yawn reappears and she can finally fall asleep.

Award-winning illustrator and author You Jung Byun received her Master’s degree of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York. She draws her influences from the various cultures she has lived amongst. Her work has been recognised by various magazines, awards and competitions, including NobrowPick Me Up LondonCommunication Arts Magazine,Creative Quarterly, and Society of Illustrators.
