About the Author

Erik Speyer was born in Argentina, raised in Denmark, South America and the US and began painting as a child. He has continued painting throughout his life, even while flying for the U.S. Navy, designing museum exhibits, and directing a science museum. He is a full time, prize-winning artist. He wrote and illustrated The Adventures of Kubi. The inspiration for "The adventures of Kubi" came during one of his trips to Vietnam, where he learned from a friend of a little dog who often jumped onto the back of a friendly water buffalo to catch a ride or a nap.


Kubi's modest adventure has decided charm, from the rich, gay colors of the landscape to the distinctive Vietnamese (or, more generally, Southeast Asian) touches to the sweet faces of the animals. A quietly alluring introduction to the riverside village world of Vietnam. ~ Kirkus Reviews, June 2015. Cute little dogs are always winners, and Kubi is no exception (...) The illustrations are rendered in watercolor and have a tranquil quality to them. This is a lovely book about a place many readers may know little about, made more familiar by the routines and antics of a small dog. ~ Booklist Online, September 2015.
