Tykotech City is home to the most incredible technology you’ve ever seen, but something is going horribly wrong with all of it, and there’s only one tiny inventor that stands between the city and total darkness…

Building her own gadgets in her dad’s repair shop, Juniper Mae is a certified kid wonder. She builds jet packs, socks that keep your feet warm and dry, floating fish bowls… But a slight malfunction with one of her latest inventions causes her to crash-land in the dangerous forests around her city, and there she discovers a whole world of mystery, ancient knights and even a small green frogling friend, Albie. Inspired by the Guardian Knights of old, Juniper Mae steps up to the plate when her city is in danger, and when a catastrophic series of events threaten to destroy her home, it’s finally time for Juniper Mae to don her own armour and step into the spotlight.


Sarah Soh grew up in Virginia and was always encouraged to draw by her parents (especially by her dad, who also loved to create artwork in his spare time). Moving to Los Angeles, she attended Otis College of Art + Design and graduated with a BFA in Illustration. A year later, she started working in the animation industry as a storyboard artist at South Park Studios. Afterwards, she has worked at Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Netflix, all as a Storyboard Supervisor. She is currently a Supervising Director at Atomic Cartoons.


Sarah has created a truly original fantasy world that captivates you from the very first page. You are immediately hooked into Juniper’s story, and loose yourself in the exquisitely rendered landscapes, and delightfully charming characters. It feels like Juniper and Albie’s adventures are only just beginning and I can’t wait to read more.

Juniper Mae strikes the perfect balance of adventure, relatability, and charm. Each page is stunning, the world rich and inviting, and the characters full of heart.

When adventure takes you into darkened forests, pull up your sensational snug socks before facing the beasts! Sarah Soh’s stunning story follows guardian warriors, genius inventors, and cute critters in a moving tale about friendship.

Heartwarming, action-packed and full of magical images.

A beautiful book, crammed with breath-taking drawings and exciting adventures. Your jaw hits the floor in astonishment from the opening page.
