"Yunroo worked with me on getting a hand-written draft of a short story that my mother wrote for my daughter, into a beautifully illustrated book that has been a great success. She help in all aspects of the project, from layout and design and of course, the fantastic illustrations she did to bring the story to life. I can't praise her work and commitment enough in making it a seamless and pleasant process!"
