More About Ed Young


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Caldecott medalist Ed Young was born in Tientsin, China, and brought up in Shanghai. He cites the philosophy of Chinese painting as an inspiration for much of his work. "A Chinese painting is often accompanied by words," he explains; "they are complementary. There are things that words do that pictures never can, and likewise, there are images that words can never describe."

Mr. Young has been illustrating children's books for more than twenty years and has won many awards. He received the 1990 Caldecott Medal for his book Lon Po Po, and his much-lauded collaboration with anthologist Nancy Larrick, Cats Are Cats, was named one of the Ten Best Illustrated Books of 1988 by The New York Times.

Mr. Young studied at the University of Illinois, the Art Center of Los Angeles, and Pratt Institute in New York City. He and his family live in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.

Reviews - What do customers think about Outrageous Contagious Joy?

Easy reading in a very organized format  May 12, 2007
I enjoyed Ed Young's book fresh language and clearly organized ideas. The books is down to earth and applicable to any Christian. It would even be a good tool for evangelism.
 
Keep Your Eyes On the Big Picture!  May 7, 2007
Apparently, my definition of "glaring errors" is quite different than others. This book is excellent and provides much-needed encouragement, advice, and hope for people today. People who set out to look for errors will always find minute, inconsequential errors in books. Every book has them, because editing on tight deadlines is tough business; and these errors usually do very little to take away from the overall meaning and effectiveness of the book. Pointing these out just keeps people who need to read this book from picking it up and quite possible changing their lives. That's a shame. I've been involved in editing books for many years, and word histories are often difficult to pin down. One book says one thing and another something very different. For "hap," the meanings "chance" and "luck" are essentially the same thing, regardless of the point of origin. By the way, I don't know how much I'd take stock in a review about editing that has such a "glaring" run-on sentence at the end. The subtitle of this book is: Five Big Questions to Help You Discover One Great Life. Let's keep our eyes on the Big picture.
 
Where have all the editors gone?  May 4, 2007
I am not familiar with Ed Young or his church, but I picked up this book because I, too, believe that Christians should be filled with Joy. Unfortunately, in the first chapter there were two glaring errors that made me question the accuracy of the remainder of the book. First, Mr. Young attributed to Roy Rogers the quote, "Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like." Obviously that is a Will Rogers quote - not Roy Rogers. Then a few pages later he asserts that "happiness" comes from the latin word "hap" which means chance. Actually, "hap" was a middle English word for luck. I read the entire book, and I feel that these errors were indicative of the lack of proper editing, which is a shame because the concepts are excellent, but the execution leaves much to be desired.
 
Still reading it and will read it again and again  Mar 2, 2007
I just started this book and put it down only to concentrate on my college courses. My plan is to read it through once to get the feel for it then re-read it while interactively doing the exercises. Great book for spiritual growth and for sharing with fellow Christians.
 
"A Must Read"  Jan 24, 2007
Ed Young has a wonderful gift and that is the ability to reach the minds, hearts and souls of people. He does it with his message during his church services and now has accomplished the same effectiveness through his writing. One can not help but feel the power of God and be uplifted after reading this book. I highly recommend it to all.
