Class of 2009 UGFTV Animation Alum Catherine (Cat) Min's children's book, "Shy Willow", was highlighted in the New York Times Children's Books section as one of "Show and Tell: 4 Picture Books About Friendship" and listed as an Amazon Prime Editor's Picks: Best Books Ages 3 - 5. This is the first book authored and illustrated by Cat Min. 

Cat Min is an illustrator, animator, and writer. Cat grew up as a shy kid in Hong Kong, where she spent most of her childhood drawing and making comic books out of printer paper and staples with her best friend. She studied animation and film at New York University, Tisch School of the Arts, and completed the Illustration & Visual Storytelling Summer Residency Program at the School of Visual Arts in New York. She is also a member of SCBWI. Her (not so) guilty pleasures are: McDonald's french fries, sappy romance comics, mobile escape game apps, visual novels, and all things cheese.
