About the Author and Illustrator:
The illustrator, Gulshan Pagdiwala, and the author, Shazneen Gandhi, are both Zoroastrian moms who currently live in Los Angeles. Born and brought up in Bombay, they have encountered the challenges of instilling in their American born children a love for Zoroastrianism and their Parsi ancestry. Both have been involved in teaching religion classes for the children of the Zoroastrian Association of California for several years. It is their belief that this story is particularly of interest to young Zoroastrians and they have worked to bring it to light with artwork and language that their young audience can relate to. Their goal is to give every Zoroastrian family access to this book. As first time publishers, they are grateful to several Zoroastrian organizations and individuals who have helped them to bring this book to market. And they are gratified by the reception this book has received among Zoroastrians and non-Zoroastrians.
