Jean and Mou-sien Tseng

Guest Author - Paula Laurita

Meet this husband and wife team of illustrators.

Jean and Mou-sien Tseng met at art school in Taiwan. In the early 80s they decided to emigrate to the US. Upon their arrival they began working in the textile and film animation industries. Their first children's book was a collaboration with Margaret Mahy on The Seven Chinese Brothers. It was selected as an American Library Association Notable Children's Book.

They have since illustrated many more children's and young adult books. Their illustrations bring life to Asian folklore from many traditions. Three Strong Women: A Tall Tale from Japan, The Khan's Daughter : A Mongolian Folktale, and Dragon Kite of the Autumn Moon show their versitilty in artistic style and ability to visually express many author's stories.

They also have illustrated memoirs, such as Water Buffalo Days : Growing Up in Vietnam, by Quang Nhuong Huynh. Linda Sue Park's delightful book Seesaw Girl is enhanced by the Tsengs' black and white illustrations. It is an example of how illustrations add to the storytelling process.

Continuing the family collaboration, in 1999 the Tsengs illustrated their daughter Grace's book White Tiger, Blue Serpent. This lovely book was a Notable Children's Trade Books in the Field of Social Studies 2000, by the National Council for Social Studies & Children Book Council.
