Descriere

Yellow & Pink is a witty picture book by William Steig, the creator of Shrek.

On a fine day, a thin, yellow puppet and a round, pink puppet sit in the sun. They wonder where they came from. Were they an accident of nature, created by a series of possible but improbable events? Did someone create them? They discuss their theories, and think they may have an answer. But just as they settle on a solution, a man arrives who raises new questions.

Praise for Yellow & Pink:

"One marvels at the expressiveness, the nearness to animation, of Steig's vibrant drawings." -The Washington Post Book World

"A comic fable that has more clout than the most fervent homily." -Publishers Weekly

"Illustrated with simple three-color drawings, this is a book that will delight adults as well as children and lead to some very interesting discussions!" -Children's Literature

Despre autor

William Steig (1907-2003) was a cartoonist, illustrator and author of award-winning books for children, including Shrek!, on which the DreamWorks movies are based. Steig was born in New York City. Every member of his family was involved in the arts, and so it was no surprise when he decided to become an artist. He attended City College and the National Academy of Design. In 1930, Steig’s work began appearing in The New Yorker, where his drawings have been a popular fixture ever since. He published his first children's book, Roland the Minstrel Pig, in 1968. In 1970, Steig received the Caldecott Medal for Sylvester and the Magic Pebble. His books for children also include Dominic; The Real Thief; The Amazing Bone, a Caldecott Honor Book; Amos & Boris, a National Book Award finalist; and Abel's Island and Doctor De Soto, both Newbery Honor Books. Steig's books have also received the Christopher Award, the Irma Simonton Black Award, the William Allen White Children's Book Award, and the American Book Award. His European awards include the Premio di Letteratura per l'infanzia (Italy), the Silver Pencil Award (the Netherlands), and the Prix de la Fondation de France. On the basis of his entire body of work, Steig was selected as the 1982 U.S. candidate for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for Illustration and subsequently as the 1988 U.S. candidate for Writing. Steig also published thirteen collections of drawings for adults, beginning with About People in 1939, and including The Lonely Ones, Male/Female, The Agony in the Kindergarten, and Our Miserable Life. He died in Boston at the age of 95.

  • (3/5)
    A creative story about two wooden puppets discussing how they came into existence. Quite humorous and highly recommended!
  • (3/5)
    Yellow and Pink is a book about two wooden figures that come alive and ponder some very deep questions. They contemplate and create explanations for their existence and creation. Children may have a difficult time remaining interested in the characters and mature themes.
  • (4/5)
    Two wooden puppets one painted yellow one painted pink are lying on newspaper in the middle of a meadow. Soon they are discussing how they came to be. One takes the position of random accidents that caused them to evolve. The other is amazed at how wonderfully designed they are. This picture book concludes with a man picking up the puppet looking him over and saying, "Nice and drive."
  • (3/5)
    Two wooden toys - a short, stout pink one, coincidentally named Pink, and a tall, straight yellow one, coincidentally named Yellow - find themselves one day left out to dry on newspaper in the countryside. They begin to wonder silently, and soon are openly questioning their entire existence: a bit unnerving to read about for two wooden toys, but in a way it's endearing. "Yellow and Pink" is definitely, in some way, William Steig's tribute to the Collodi's Pinocchio story that he loved so much as a child.This is not, however, one of Steig's most enjoyable books. The two toys spend much of the book engaged in some kind of scientific, philosophical debate about their creation
