Kristi Kangilaski (1982) is an Estonian graphic designer, illustrator and children’s author. She has designed and illustrated children’s books as well as literature for adults, including books by Jaan Tätte, Siiri Sisask, Epp Petrone, and, naturally, herself. She has written two books for children: Päike läheb puhkusele (The Sun Takes A Holiday, Päike ja Pilv, 2012) is about the sun that transforms into a yellow cat, and Tuvi ei taha saia (The Pigeon Does Not Want Any Bread, Päike ja Pilv, 2014) talks about the friendship of a pigeon and a little girl. Els Heinsalu (1980) is an Estonian physicist and the President of the Estonian Young Academy of Sciences. Her range as a scientist is extensive, spanning the Brownian motion and dialects of the Basque language. This year, the first collaboration of Kangilaski and Heinsalu was published; the book Ahaa! (Päike ja Pilv, 2019) illustrated by Kangilaski and written by Heinsalu, looks at the great discoveries in history. It helps children find out about Archimedes, Galilei, Newton and other great figures of science, and their accomplishments. Ahaa! won second prize in the Põlvepikuraamat writing competition in 2017.
