Ungerer was born in Strasbourg, France, the youngest of four children to Alice (Essler) and Theo Ungerer.[4][5] The family moved to Logelbach, near Colmar, after the death of Tomi's father, Theodore — an artist, engineer, and astronomical clock manufacturer — in 1936. Ungerer also lived through the German occupation of Alsace when the family home was requisitioned by the Wehrmacht.As a young man, Ungerer was inspired by the illustrations appearing in The New Yorker magazine, particularly the work of Saul Steinberg.[6][7] In 1957, the year after he moved to the U.S., Harper & Row published his first children's book, The Mellops Go Flying, and his second, The Mellops Go Diving for Treasure; by the early 1960s he had created at least ten children's picture books with Harper, plus a few others, and had illustrated some books by other writers. He also did illustration work for such publications as The New York Times, Esquire, Life, Harper's Bazaar, The Village Voice,[7] and for television during the 1960s, and began to create posters denouncing the Vietnam War.In 2007, his home town dedicated a museum to him, the Musée Tomi Ungerer/Centre international de l’illustration.[8]Ungerer currently divides his time between Ireland (where he and his wife moved in 1976),[10] and Strasbourg.[8] In addition to his work as a graphic artist and 'drawer', he is also a designer, toy collector and "archivist of human absurdity.
