Read full description of the books The Little Red Fish:A little boy enters a library with his grandfather and his little red fish at his side. But when he awakes after falling asleep amidst the library shelves, his fish is missing. Could his little friend have disappeared into that red book over there on the shelf?
Join us in celebrating this stunning debut by first-time illustrator Taeeun Yoo. With dreamlike qualities of early Maurice Sendak and fine etchings that strongly evoke the mysterious and the magical, The Little Red Fish pays homage to imagination and the power of a good book.
Read information about the authorTaeeun Yoo was born in Korea and grew up in Seoul in her grandfather's beautiful garden-house. She was raised in a large traditional family with nine members and remembers many fun stories. Growing up, she watched her great-grandmother make traditional Korean costumes, and watched her grandfather carefully observe his orchids and bonsai. Now her grandfather often appears in her illustrations.
She studied Korean brush painting at Hong Ik University in Korea, and moved to New York to attend graduate school in illustration at The School of Visual Arts. While she studied in graduate school, she was influenced by one of her teachers, Bruce Waldman, a famous etcher. She made her first children's book using etching. Her work has appeared in Cricket, Ladybug, and The New York Times. Her first picture book, The Little Red Fish will be published by Dial Books for Young Readers in 2007. She is currently working on The Umbrella Queen by Shirin Yim Bridges, to be published by Greenwillow Books, and Only a Witch Can Fly by Alison McGhee, forthcoming from Feiwel & Friends. Taeeun lives in New York City and enjoys walking on the streets, listening to street musicians, and drawing on location.
