Andrea Tsurumi (@AndreaTsurumi) is a writer and illustrator AND our first repeat guest! Her debut picture book Accident! just came out with HMH Books and it's magical. I remember talking to Andrea right when she got the book deal in episode 75 of People I Think Are Cool, and it's amazing to see where the book is now. I definitely recommend checking out both episodes to get a feel for the huge and talented range of Andrea's humor. Accident! is getting rave reviews, and Andrea shares all of her delightful storytelling secrets with us!
