About the Author
James Yang's prize-winning work has appeared in many magazines, including "Graphis, Newsweek, Forbes, Fortune, " and "Sports Illustrated, " as well as in the "New York Times" and the Wall "Street Journal."

When J"oey and Jet, " his first book for children, was published in 2004, "Publishers Weekly" praised it as "visually enticing." "The Horn Book" described it as "a minimal-vocabulary depiction of boy and dog [which] quickly segues into a lively tour of prepositions...a comical and satisfying story." "Booklist" called it a "clever, energetic romp." "Kirkus Reviews" declared it "an excellent introduction to what can usually be a difficult concept for youngsters." And "School Library Journal" said "libraries will want to fetch copies for themselves."

The designer of "Clockman," a sculpture on display at the National Museum of American History, Mr. Yang and his wife live in New York City.
