Author

Ed Young was born in Tientsin China and grew up Shanghai.  Later he moved to Hong Kong.  He moved to the United States on a student visa to study architecture but turned instead to his love of art.  Young began as a commercial artist but soon discovered that children's books offered him an opportunity  for more expression.  Young places great emphasis on researching his work and hopes his work expands his reader's awareness.  He seeks for his readers to become active participants in reading.  Young is the illustrator of over eighty books for children, seventeen of which he has also written.

 

Young has a degree from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and has taught at the Pratt Institute, Yale University, Naropa Institute, and the University of California at Santa Cruz.   In 1990, his book Lon Po Po was awarded the Caldecott Medal. He has also received two Caldecott Honors – for The Emperor and the Kite and Seven Blind Mice – and was twice nominated for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal, the highest international recognition given to children's book authors and illustrators who have made a lasting contribution to children's literature.  Young lives in Westchester County, New York, with his two daughters, and two cats.
