Release Date April 1, 2022
Emet loves to paint. But grown-ups think he should spend his time doing more important things. When Emet stops doing what he loves, color disappears from his world. What does Emet discover within himself in order to bring color back into his life?
When Jeni Chen was a little girl living in Taiwan, she wanted to be Madonna when she
grew up, even though she couldn’t carry a tune. While living in Taiwan, Jeni watched
Hollywood movies and dreamed of moving to America. When she was fourteen, her
family immigrated to Canada, where she lives today. In high school, Jeni fell in love
with the magic of science and ended up working in laboratories as a research
assistant. It wasn’t until Jeni became a mom that she became inspired to draw comics. Jeni returned to school and obtained a fine art certificate from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Finding her creative voice has led her to create public art installments and illustrate for children. Jeni wrote a story about how she feels when doing what she loves—art! That story is Emet’s Box. Jeni would love to hear from you about what brings you joy.
