Author Biography

KAREN AVRIL, from the sunny city of Santa Cruz, never thought she would be a writer until her daughter Eva came into her life and she started creating stories to tell her at bedtime. Over the years, and with each new addition to their family, the stories would grow until Ines and Mark were waiting for more tales about their favorite characters every single night. One day she put pen to paper and wrote her first book as a gift for her kids so that they could keep the stories they shared forever. But her amazing trio told her that they wished that other children could hear their special stories, that had brought them so much pleasure and joy. This was how this mother became an author, with the love and support of her family.
Now, a published writer, Karen got to leave the rat-race behind and instead gets to create fun tales that touch the hearts of children everywhere. Another bonus is that she gets to spend more time with her family, from trying out new flavors of ice-cream or exploring new places, this happy Mom feels like she is the luckiest person in the world.

Meet Miki the baby dragon in Miki and the Human Baby by Karen Avril. He is one of the few dragons left on the planet. At some point, dragons outnumbered humans, but not so anymore. Humans are continually increasing while dragons seem to decrease in number. There are some things that fascinate dragons concerning humans, yet there are others that Miki and his folks find revolting. Teeth, for example, seem to be a big deal to the baby dragon. He finds them particularly interesting. Still, humans’ bad smell, lack of scales and wings is totally appalling to the young dragon. On one of his escapades, Miki picks up a bad scent in the air. At first, he doesn’t seem to know where the terrible smell could be coming from. He soon realizes that it is coming from the baby human behind the rock! Fascinated by the tiny thing, Miki decides to take him home, but will he be able to keep the baby hidden from his keen, watchful mother?

Miki and the Human Baby by Karen Avril is a compelling tale that is deftly told in a simple language that will resonate with any young reader. Avril’s skill is unmatched as she incorporates different scenes and powerful characters that make the plot interesting and engaging. Similarly, Charity Russel, the illustrator, does a wonderful job. Miki and the Human Baby is filled with beautiful, thought-provoking and humorous images so that without Russel’s creativity the story would not be the same. Miki and the Human Baby by Karen Avril contains a valuable lesson touching on coexistence. Simply beautiful and thrilling!
