Wong Herbert Yee

Wong Herbert Yee is the author and illustrator of Tracks in the Snow, Who Likes Rain, Fireman Small and Big Black Bear, among other books. Born in Detroit, Michigan, one of his favorite memories of childhood is of leaving the first tracks on fresh-fallen snow. He also remembers his first grade teacher tacking one of his drawings on the bulletin board—ever since then, he’s been an artist. He studied printmaking at Wayne State University. He lives with his wife and daughter in Troy, Michigan.
