About me

Yu-Hua Ho is a Taiwanese illustrator. She used to work at an animation company for nearly three years. In 2019, she started working as a freelance illustrator. She believes that it is valuable to capture life stories in picture books. She cares deeply about nature and aims to raise people’s awareness of environmental issues through children’s books. Additionally, she possesses a curious and open-minded personality, enjoying the exploration of different cultures and sharing her experiences with people around the world. In 2021, she collaborated with an author and self-published a children’s book titled ‘Little Goat Gets Lost.’ This experience inspired her to conduct more research about children’s books. However, she also loves to challenge herself with various art forms. Her upcoming project, ‘Shh! The Secret Adventure’ will be a mixed media children’s book, which is a medium she has never worked with before.”

“Shh! The secret adventure.” will be a children’s book aimed at increasing children’s awareness of environmental issues. This is a story about a baby chimpanzee trying to escape from the zoo in the middle of the city. During the chimpanzee’s escape, he deals with many challenges, such as air pollution, mudslides, and water pollution. The reader will learn about these serious environmental issues through the fun, unpredictable adventure of the Chimpanzee. In the end, the chimpanzee and other animals escaped to a green island by a boat that was built with recycled trash.

The sketches originating from the London Zoo serve as a wellspring of inspiration for the narrative's progression, effectively illustrating the transition from urban landscapes to natural habitats.
