This superbly illustrated book cleverly expresses how one small voice can make a difference in this world.

(Irish Examiner)

'No!' is a story of hope and of how hope can be changed into reality by action. The lovely, sympathetic illustrations reflect that also. In his letter to the President, the child says there are rules in his school playground - no pushing, no punching. 'Does he have any rules?' Well, not for the peace and safety of all the playgrounds in the world is the sad answer. But this book is working on it. Any child will love and value 'No!' and take its message to heart. It is endorsed by Annmesty International UK. Well, three cheers for them and for David Phail. I wonder, could we send a book of 'No!' to every government in the world?

(Armadillo Magazine)

Packs a powerful punch and would be a wonderful springboard for discussion with older pupils as well as a moving read for younger ones.

(School Librarian)

This is an emotional picturebook for the older reader.

(Bookfest Ireland - Recommended Reading Guide)

Disturbing at first, but if you persevere it's very moving and that's the idea... A book you need to take time over, looking at the messages in the images.


Best Children's Books of 2011: A powerful fable for our times, this almost wordless picture book will provoke discussion and questioning for young readers, all too aware from their television screens of the real life wars currently being waged in the world. David McPail's intense corsshatching and fluid line together with his sombre palette carry the narrative well. (Rosemary Stones, editor Books for Keeps)

(Books for Keeps)

'There are few words in the book, but the pictures speak volumes. What is most moving is that the boy is unmoved by the horror that we see... David McPhail's illustrations are stark and straight to the point'.

(The Bookbag)

'This almost wordless story conveys a strong message which is accessible to all through the dramatic and thought provoking illustrations...'

(Parent's in Touch)

McPhail's delicate watercolor and pencil illustrations bring the understated story to life. Not only introducing a tough topic to a young crowd, this profound narrative also demonstrates the importance of taking a stand and the power of one voice.

(School Library Journal)

The idea of taking effective action without fighting is a powerful one, and children and adults alike will find that McPhail’s images linger.

(Publishers Weekly)

Reseña del editor:

Endorsed by Amnesty International.

No. No? No! A little boy sets out to deliver a letter, witnessing acts of war on the way. But when he encounters a bully by the post-box, he decides that enough is enough. Almost wordless, but speaking volumes, No! dramatises conflict and its alternatives in a language that is accessible to everyone, young or old: beautiful paintings, executed with profound feeling and an artist's vision and wisdom. No! is the author's expression of hope that the playgrounds of the world, big and small, will soon become safer and friendlier for all.
