Summary
An effective, unusual 34-word story of the beginnings of a friendship, accompanied by wild and wonderful illustrations. Against pastel backgrounds, in vibrant, colorful images, an African-American boy and a white boy meet on the street. [Their] one- and two-word exchanges on each spread lead to a tentative offer of friendship, sealed as both boys jump high in the air and yell Yow!" With a beautifully balanced, economical style, the book illumines the peaks and pitfalls of getting acquainted, and puts in a good word for brotherhood as well." --School Library Journal, starred review; Chris Raschka is the Caldecott Award-winning illustrator of A BALL FOR DAISY and THE HELLO, GOODBYE WINDOW. He is also the illustrator of YO! YES? (which won a Caldecott Honor), SOURPUSS AND SWEETIE PIE, CHARLIE PARKER PLAYED BE BOP, and FARMY FARM. He lives with his wife and son in New York City.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ages 5-9. Using a minimum of text (less than 30 words), Raschka manages to convey myriad emotions during a meeting that ends in friendship. "Yo!" says the black kid, wearing a T-shirt, shorts, and gymshoes with untied laces. "Yes?" replies the shy white kid, shrugging into his cardigan sweater. "What's up?" "Not much." And so goes the dialogue, back and forth, until the cure for boredom becomes clear: "Me!" "You?" "Yes, me!" The text has a staccato cadence similar to that used in Raschka's first picture book, Charlie Parker Played BeBop , and a comparable freshness as well. The pictures feature just the boys set against lightly washed pages, their body language speaking volumes, a great counterpoint to the brevity of their conversation. And speaking of conversation, this could start plenty in a classroom; the book's a natural jumping-off place for discussions of friendship, race relations, and even language.

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Raschka's innovative picture book aims to explore the nature of friendship in only 34 words. It's a risk, but as a writer and artist Raschka is no stranger to risk-taking--his debut ( Charlie Parker Played Be Bop ) was a sly, joyous exercise in avant-garde that stretched the definition of picture book. And here, he does the same. After the briefest of exchanges, two boys--one black, one white, one shy, one outgoing, one nerdy, one street-smart--decide to take a chance on friendship. Like a two-character play with no scenery and minimal dialogue, the story relies on the expressiveness of the ``actors'' and the raw energy of the artwork to hook the reader. Raschka's watercolor and charcoal pencil illustrations certainly do the trick--they're brash, witty and offbeat, and easily portray a vigorous range of emotion. At least in the small realm of this cheeky picture book, less is definitely more. Ages 3-6. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
