MICHAEL FOREMAN has won the Kate Greenaway Medal, the Kurt Maschler Award, and the Bologna Graphics Prize. Of MIA'S STORY: A SKETCHBOOK OF HOPES AND DREAMS, he says, "I was traveling from Santiago, Chile, into the Andes and came upon what seemed to be a wasteland, a landscape of trash from the city. But a man who lived there, Manuel, showed me that it was the opposite of a wasteland. For Manuel and his fellow villagers, the trash was a crop to be harvested, recycled, and made useful once more. This book is dedicated to their spirit and inspiration." Michael Foreman lives in London.
