About the Author

David Seow was born and raised in Singapore. He studied at the University of Portland, Oregon, where he received a BA in Communications, and his professional career has run the gamut from public relations and advertising to scriptwriting. He is the author of numerous well-received children's books, many of which feature his young niece and nephews as the main characters.

Illustrator Olga Marie Polunin is an artist whose work has been inspired by the early religious works of Asia and Europe. She is of Russian-English and Hakka Chinese descent, and her paternal grandparents, Vladimir and Violet Polunin, were respected artists and friends and colleagues of Diaghilev, Matisse, Picasso and Bracques. In her work, Olga seeks to explore her Asian roots through images of the feminine form, and Chinese influences are particularly evident in her series of nude paintings. Her work has a poetic simplicity and is filled with humor, wit, sensuality and spirituality, and her paintings have been exhibited in New York, Brussels, Boston, Hong Kong, Jakarta and Singapore. She currently resides in Belgium.

The Littlest Emperor wins big with children and adults. I am an English teacher. I found the pictures bright and enticing. They help tell this classic story of a little boy who wants to have fun. My four year old enjoyed it, as did her preschool class. They loved the pictures, and learned a bit about Chinese traditions, too. (Read the page preceding the title page.) It was a fun book and I recommend it.
