About the Author

About Michele Wong McSween: Michele is a mom, author, entrepreneur, and a fourth-generation Chinese American. She resides in Brooklyn, NY, and holds degrees from the University of California at Berkeley and the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Growing up in Sacramento, CA, she never learned Chinese and wanted to be sure her boys were confident with the Chinese language and culture. After enrolling them in early-learning Mandarin classes, Michele looked for appropriate Mandarin bedtime reading and found that little was available. She leveraged her skills as a fashion designer and created Gordon & Li Li with an appealing, simple, modern aesthetic that engages kids and parents alike.
