About the illustrator:
Sandy Nichols is a big fan of Albert Einstein. Unlike Lorenzo, however, she prefers art over math and physics, and studied at the Alberta College of Art and Design.
She has been illustrating for magazines and advertising clients for about fifteen years. She currently lives in Calgary with her husband, daughter, and twin boys. Although she has read a galaxy of stories to her three children, this is her first time illustrating a picture book.
