Background on Laurence Yep and Insu LeeLaurence Yep has been fascinated with tales of sibling rivalry from the day he was born. His older brother, Tom, chose his name Laurence—after a saint who died a particularly gruesome death. Laurence has been trying to get even ever since.

As a child, Insu Lee spent summer vacations with his sister in the Korean countryside. His memories of their shenanigans were an inspiration for the illustrations in Auntie Tiger. Insu Lee attended Hongik University in Seoul, Korea, and received his graduate degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He resides in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where he is illustrating his next children's book.
