Yellow Dress Day, published in 2012, was Sophie's first published picture book. Since then she has illustrated Indigo Solves the Pzuzle and is currently working on a new picture book scheduled for release in 2014.
As a work experience student, Sophie’s exceptional artistic talents were quickly discovered by New Frontier Publishing. She is about to begin her studies at Sydney University.
Sophie selects the five books that have most influenced her.
The book was probably the first "grown up" book I ever read. Beginning from the upheavals in China from the 1930s, this autobiography tells Ng's story from incredible famine in peasant China to her eventual migration to Australia. Since borrowing the book from my mother when I was twelve, I have never forgotten the unimaginable horrors it described - which in time has taught me to appreciate the safe life I live and to not become too caught up in everyday grievances.
