In 1990 Frazee illustrated her first published book, World-Famous Muriel and the Magic Mystery, written by Sue Alexander. After Muriel, Frazee illustrated That Kookoory! which was written by Margaret Walden Froehlich. She received good reviews of her work in the Horn Book Magazine, a journal for children's literature and young-adult literature.
Following the release of The Seven Silly Eaters, Frazee illustrated many books which increased her popularity. In 1998, Frazee illustrated On the Morn of Mayfest written by Erica Silverman.

Harriet, You'll Drive Me Wild!, deals with Harriet, a little girl who doesn't mean to be pesky but can't help but get in the way of her mother. They both do things they wish they hadn't, but their love for each other remains strong. Then in 2001, Frazee illustrated Everywhere Babies, a book written by Susan Meyers. The book tells babies all the ways their families love them, and the diverse community Frazee creates is united by the love for their children. After Everywhere Babies, Frazee illustrated Linda Smith's text, Mrs. Biddlebox in 2002. Mrs. Biddlebox uses all the ingredients to her bad day (fog, dirt, and sky) to bake a delicious cake.
Frazee wrote her first book, Roller Coaster in 2003. The idea for the book was conceived during a family trip, during which Frazee's sons talked continuously about roller coasters. Roller Coaster became the first book both written and illustrated by Frazee. It follows a typical roller coaster ride and its passengers; a young girl apprehensive about the ride becomes the main character.
In 2006, Frazee illustrated Clementine, a series of chapter books written by Sara Pennypacker Frazee uses pen and ink drawings to make the story of an overly-active and imaginative third-grader come to life. More recently, Frazee wrote and illustrated A Couple of Boys have the Best Week Ever. Loosely based upon the adventures of her son and his friend at a nature camp, Frazee captures the essence of summer vacation and what it means to children. Frazee earned her first Caldecott Honor for her illustrations in the book, although she wrote it as well. Following the publication of A Couple of Boys have the Best Week Ever, Frazee illustrated All the World, a book written by Elizabeth Garton Scanlon. The book follows a family and their friends through the course of a day and ends with a festive gathering at night. For her beautiful illustrations and double page spreads, Frazee picked up another Caldecott Honor.
In Fall 2007, The Boss Baby, both written and illustrated by Frazee, was published. Frazee describes a young couple's newest arrival. The baby quickly takes over their lives with his nightly "meetings" and demands. The Boss Baby was met with positive reviews, with the Horn Book Magazine calling it "this year's baby-shower hit." In all, The Boss Baby garnered more than three starred reviews. DreamWorks Animation released an animated feature film loosely based on the book in March 2017, with a sequel scheduled for March 2021. They also released a Netflix show based on the book titled The Boss Baby: Back in Business
