BLOG TOUR w/ Giveaway: You are (Not) Small by Anna Kang


ABOUT THE BOOK

Two fuzzy creatures can't agree on who is small and who is big, until a couple of surprise guests show up, settling it once and for all!

The simple text of Anna Kang and bold illustrations of New Yorker cartoonist Christopher Weyant tell an original and very funny story about size it all depends on who's standing next to you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR/ILLUSTRATOR

Christopher Weyant’s work has been published worldwide in books, newspapers, magazines, and online. His cartoons are in permanent collection at The Whitney Museum of American Art and The Morgan Library & Museum in New York City.

Anna Kang received her MFA from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. YOU ARE (NOT) SMALL is their first children’s book; they are currently at work on a sequel. They live with their children in New Jersey.

REVIEW

Not only is this a fun book about opposites, but the illustrations are adorable.  When two fuzzy creatures get into an argument about size they drag their fellow fuzzy critters into it.  It appears the argument will continue for some time until the arrival of some visitors.  It always delights me when such seemingly simple books reveal themes and ideas that aren't so simple.  Here the seemingly simple idea of big versus small translates into a variety of size comparisons.  Not only is it a delightfully funny book, but it's a great way to introduce young children to size comparisons. Highly recommended.
