Tania de Regil is the creator of the picture book A New Home (Candlewick),which was named an ALA Notable Children’s Book and a Best Book of the Year by the New York Public Library and the Chicago Public Library. The Spanish edition, Un Nuevo Hogar was a Bank Street Best Spanish Language Picture Book of the Year and included in the prestigious 2020-2021 Tejas Star Reading List. Tania’s second book as author and illustrator is Something About Grandma (Candlewick), which was released simultaneously in English and Spanish as Un verano especial con la abuela. Tania also illustrated the picture books We Really Do Care, written by Tami Lewis Brown and Welcome to the Big Kids Club, written by Chelsea Clinton (Philomel). Most recently, she illustrated award winning author Sally J. Pla’s forthcoming middle grade novel, Invisible Isabel (HarperCollins).

When Tania was five, she moved to Stockholm, Sweden with her family, where she discovered her love of reading and decided that she wanted to be a professional writer someday. Tania studied fashion design at Parsons School of Design in New York City and finished her studies in her home country of Mexico. Her work as a costume designer in film and television has helped her to better grasp the art of storytelling through images. Tania’s illustration work is always filled with interesting details for children to discover. She uses a variety of media in her work, such as watercolor, gouache, color pencils, wax pastels and ink to create richly textured, engaging images. She lives in Mexico City with her family.
