But Sophia’s favorite type of trees are the willows she encountered while visiting Australia as a child. Favorites aside, she believes that all trees are equally important. Today, Sophia lives by the beach with her family, where she spends her time researching, writing, and dreaming about faraway places. The Boy Who Grew a Forest is Sophia’s debut picture book.

About The Boy Who Grew a Forest: As a boy, Jadav Payeng was distressed by the destruction deforestation and erosion was causing on his island home in India's Brahmaputra River. So he began planting trees. What began as a small thicket of bamboo, grew over the years into 1,300 acre forest filled with native plants and animals. The Boy Who Grew a Forest tells the inspiring true story of Payeng--and reminds us all of the difference a single person with a big idea can make.
