Yu Rong was born and raised in China. While training to become a primary school teacher she discovered her love for art, and later gained a BA degree in Decorative Art from Nanjing University. She worked as a computer designer, arts and crafts designer and children's book illustrator for five years before moving to England with her now husband. She then earned an MA degree in Art and Design from the Royal College of Art in London.From Booklist:
PreS. When gosling Amelia wakes up ("Good morning, Amelia Goose!"), she heads to the pond, where she and her pal Frog "jump and splash and play." Then, thoroughly pleased with the day's activities, she goes home to bed ("Good night, Amelia Goose!"). Very young children will be drawn to Rong's toy-box colors and crisply defined, cut-paper shapes, as well as the hand-lettered sound effects: "Flip flop flip flop" as Amelia strolls hither and thither; "Splish splash . . . sploosh! Bubbly bubbly bubbly" as she and Frog frolic in the water. Although the straightforward dawn-to-dusk story line aims at babies and toddlers, the onomatopoeia gives this the same read-aloud appeal as books in Jonathan London and Frank Remkiewicz's Froggy series for slightly older children. The artwork would have benefited from more detail (a few strategically placed black lines, for instance, could have defined the webbing in Amelia's curiously blocky feet), but Rong has a strong design sense, grounded in a simplicity that parallels Amelia's enthusiasm for her unremarkable yet wholly satisfying day.
