Olusayo Ajetunmobi is a storyteller and fine artist. She has illustrated over a dozen children’s stories, and in the process became enamored with folklore. To make up for the lost folktales, she crafted new ones. ‘Sayo aims to explore, destigmatize, and decolonize African stories and culture through her folktales and art. The Greedy Ostrich is her debut as author-illustrator.
