Mike Yamada is an illustrator and animation production designer based in Pasadena, California.

“There’s a mix of tenderness and action in nearly every scene, and Yamada sometimes creates space between the two bears in his cheery cartoons, letting the younger one pilot his own helicopter, jet, and tugboat in a way that hints at the push-and-pull between independence and intimacy. The repeating structure and gentle reassurances of Goldberg’s verse cast a cozy, restful spell.” —Publishers Weekly
