Gisela Bohórquez, illustrator

Gisela Bohórquez fell in love with drawing when her parents gave her a huge box of crayons at three years old. Born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia, she was always surrounded by her uncle Jairo’s amazing books and her father’s drawings. At school, she used to sell little stickers with animals she drew herself. Ever since, Gisela knew she wanted to be an artist and work with shapes and colors. She studied Graphic Design in college, where she learned digital illustration and fell in love with those techniques. She loves to put her whole heart in her work: according to her, that’s the secret to connecting people with her designs.

Children's Literature

April and Mae are best friends. So are their cat and dog. Every day, they do an activity together. Saturdays are their movie nights. April brings pineapple to put on top of their pizza because she knows it's Mae's favorite. Mae chooses the movie, and tonight she picks a scary movie she knows April will like. Though the girls try, they don't always like the same things. How can they stay friends if they have different preferences? Bright illustrations walk young readers through a story about friendship, particularly how to navigate conflict and support each other even when one friend likes things the other isn't comfortable with, like scary movies. Simple sentences, humor, and vivid facial expressions make the story accessible to young readers transitioning from picture books toward chapter books. This is a great series for parents or caregivers who are helping early elementary students explore the emotional challenges of friendships.
