Sveta is the author of Mommy Hurries Home (2009) and The Nenuphar Book (2011, Russian and Romanian).

Sveta lives in Israel with her husband and two children.
"After reading The Land of Stone Flowers, you'll come away with a
new appreciation for the magical world, for your own world, and for

touches even people like me who are strongly rooted in logic and
objective truth...In the end, all I can say is, 'Wow.' This book is
"What would fairies and mythical creatures think of humans? This gem of a book seeks to answer that question - and does so through gorgeous art nouveau illustrations and imaginative tales. You'll savor each page."
