Author Laurence Yep

Laurence Yep was born in 1948 and has been writing since he was 18 years old. His first short story, published by a science fiction magazine, earned him a penny a word. Today, he's known as the premier Asian American writer, and his books have earned many awards, including two Newbery Honors: Dragonwings in 1976 and Dragon's Gate in 1994. The Dragon Prince: A Chinese Beauty & the Beast Tale is Laurence Yep's newest picture book illustrated by Kam Mak. It is another example of his wonderful way of retelling Chinese folklore in a new and exciting manner, and is an extension of his exploration of the "common human thread" that exists among all the various cultures in the United States.
