Eva Chen shares 3 2 1 AWESOME! and ROXY THE LAST UNISAURUS REX. Eva’s JUNO VALENTINE series brings forth the world of fashion in an inviting and inclusive way that Eva herself describes as something of a fashion feminist fairy tale. The latest in the Junoverse is 3 2 1 AWESOME!: 20 Fearless Women Who Dared to be Different. Illustrated by Juno Valentine artist Derek Desierto, this book counts down amazing accomplishments by women across the globe in a format that adds up to a whole lot of awe. Eva’s latest book is called ROXY THE LAST UNISAURUS REX. It’s illustrated by Matthew Rivera and in this story Eva embraces biracial representation and feeling like you’re the only one. As Eva shares, “every kid goes through a phase where they’re unsure of themselves or their place in the universe.” Eva Chen is on a mission to make sure that every kid knows that they’re home is right here.
