Wong Herbert Yee was born in Detroit, Michigan. He received his B. F. A. from Wayne State University and currently works as a graphic artist in Troy, Michigan. His daughter's early development of a sense of humor amused and inspired Yee enough to write and illustrate Eek! There's a Mouse in the House. Since then Yee has gone on to write and illustrate many more beloved picture books including Fireman Small.
Wong Herbert Yee remembers when he and his two brothers and four sisters used to walk a mile to school. One of his favorite memories is of leaving the first tracks on fresh-fallen snow (and in a mile’s walk, that's a lot of tracks!). The author and illustrator of numerous books for children, Wong Herbert Yee lives with his wife and daughter in Troy, Michigan (where there is plenty of snow to tramp through during the long, cold winter). His latest picture book, Who Likes Rain?, was published in Spring 2007.
