When war forces two sisters to flee their home in South Sudan with nothing but the clothes they are wearing, Big Sister strives to help Little Sister smile again at the refugee settlement. But as quickly as Little Sister's smile appears, it disappears: that is until water makes mud. In the end, Big Sister's artistry and kindness brings hope to their situation.

This title is a tribute to the resourcefulness of children who have no toys, but continue to play and is dedicated to the 200,000 refugee children living at the Bidibidi settlement in Uganda.

Morgan Taylor is a Philadelphia-area native who graduated from Arcadia University's Bachelor of Arts Program for Illustration. She enjoys working mainly in oil paint and digital mediums. Morgan's main focus is portraiture, nature, and things from everyday life. Morgan draws upon various life influences for her work. One of the earliest being her mother's wide use of color in quilting. Additionally, her father would take her to book stores weekly as a child, and she would pick books based on their illustrations. Today, she can often be found either curled up with a good book and a cat or caring for her succulents and cacti. Her goal is to interpret and tell stories through art, and to promote an interest in what makes the seemingly ordinary beautiful. Morgan currently resides in eastern Pennsylvania.
