She was born in Seattle and now lives in Bremerton, Washington, in a small house by the water. She studied painting at the University of Washington, where she worked with the great American painter Jacob Lawrence. In addition to making art, Toni works in the King County library system.

Booklist Review

After Night Owl waves good-bye to the sun and greets the moon, he listens to the sounds around him: Tap tap tap . . . is that Mommy Owl? No, it's Woodpecker. Night Owl flies about, tracing other sounds to their sources (a train whistle, Cricket, and Toad). When a storm begins, he flies back to his hollow-tree home and listens to the thunder rumble and boom. At last, he hears his mother's hoot, the nicest sound of all. Yuly, who wrote and illustrated Early Bird (2014), knows how to capture and hold the attention of young children. Simplicity is key in both the story and the artwork, which combines pen and ink with digital media. Although Night Owl is portrayed as independent, curious, and brave, toddlers and preschoolers will understand that he really wants his mother during the storm. Bold, black lines define the characters and settings, though the scenes are brightened with many shades of purple and touches of yellow, red, and blue. With its question-and-response text, this is a satisfying choice for reading aloud.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2015 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-In a gentle tale suffused in purple and black tones, little Night Owl happily greets the night. But where is his mother? In a series of onomatopoeic moments, the owlet hears different sounds and wonders if it's his mother's. Alas, each one reveals a cricket, a train, a toad or other source of the sound-but no mother. When a storm crashes in, the owlet wings bravely home to his tree where his mother soon joins him. With the simplest of lines, Yuly imbues her owl baby with great character. Reminiscent of Martin Waddell's Owl Babies (Candlewick 1992), the simple text is suited for group sharing or one-on-one with toddlers, who will happily join in with making the sounds. The little creature portrayed in bold pen and ink and digital pictures will capture readers with his resiliency and calm.-Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WI (c) Copyright 2014.
