Biographical Sketch

Jean Thomas Ungerer (Tomi) was born in Strasbourg, France in 1931. He studied at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs and moved to the United State in 1957. He has worked as a cartoonist, painter, advertising artist, writer and illustrator of books for both children and adults. His children's books often have animal protagonists, but he choses animals uncommon in the genre -- bats, rats, boa constrictors -- to amuse both himself and his audience. Many of his books have won prestigious awards.
