9780399236242: What About Me?

Ed Young once again turns a fable into a saucy collage treat in this tale about a boy who is just looking for a little bit of knowledge! Told he can have knowledge if he gets the Grand Master a carpet, he begins a journey on which everyone-from Spinner to Goatkeeper-tells him their problems. What about me? they demand. In the search for the answers, the boy discovers he has all the knowledge he needs.

A wonderful, circular tale that makes a terrific read-aloud, What About Me? is also a story with a wise moral. Ed Young's deceptively simple cut-paper images seem to jump off the page.

Review:

Spare collage work and Sufi wisdom tell the tale of a boy in search of knowledge. Three-time Caldecott winner Ed Young (Lon Po Po) returns here with a simple, cyclical story about giving, receiving, and unexpected rewards.

The boy (in a red, marbled robe and cute blue construction-paper shoes) hopes to gain knowledge from the wispy-bearded Grand Master, who appears to almost float as he assumes a sort of yogic Baked Potato Pose. But the master needs a carpet first, so the boy goes in search of the carpetmaker. The carpetmaker barks at the boy, "What about me? I need thread for weaving my carpets." Of course, the spinner woman needs goat hair to make thread, and the goatkeeper needs a pen for his goats in exchange for the hair. Naturally, the carpenter who makes pens for goats needs a wife... and so on and so on, until the boy finally finds a way to meet everyone's needs--including his own.

The flecked, stationery-style backgrounds look unnecessarily static here, but fortunately Young's energetic figures compensate with vibrant momentum. And What About Me? gets especially fun as the boy races to reach his final goal, and each colorful cut-out appears to jump onto the next page. (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes

About the Author:

Caldecott medalist Ed Young was born in Tientsin, China, and brought up in Shanghai. He cites the philosophy of Chinese painting as an inspiration for much of his work. "A Chinese painting is often accompanied by words," he explains; "they are complementary. There are things that words do that pictures never can, and likewise, there are images that words can never describe."

Mr. Young has been illustrating children's books for more than twenty years and has won many awards. He received the 1990 Caldecott Medal for his book Lon Po Po, and his much-lauded collaboration with anthologist Nancy Larrick, Cats Are Cats, was named one of the Ten Best Illustrated Books of 1988 by The New York Times.

Mr. Young studied at the University of Illinois, the Art Center of Los Angeles, and Pratt Institute in New York City. He and his family live in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.
