Michael Emberley

Michael Emberley has been writing and illustrating children’s books since 1979. He grew up in Ipswich, Massachusetts, just north of Boston and now lives in San Diego, California. He has no art degree, no writing degree, no kids, no house and no pets but he does have a lot of pencils and a pretty decent stereo. He also has a sister and father (Rebecca and Ed) who also make children’s books. His hobbies include bicycle racing, bike riding, cycling, mountain biking and avoiding driving. He bought his first television set at age of forty so he could watch a bike race and his first car a few years later because there’s no subway in California.
