Yes! No. is a fun graphic story for animal lovers. Using just 19 words in total (‘Yes’ and ‘No’ repeated), it tells the action-packed tale of a raccoon’s efforts to steal freshly baked pie from a home, and the antics which follow as it alternates between winning and losing, finally being thwarted by the home’s pets and small human.

The story explores themes of persistence, friendship and sharing, and is suitable for fans of books like Jeff Mack’s Mine! and Gillian Rubinstein’s Dog In, Cat Out.

I Don’t Like Cheese

USD $17.99 Tax Included

Mike the mouse isn’t like other mice. He just won’t eat cheese. Fortunately, Ashley, the little human girl who lives in the house, feeds him lots of tasty treats: like pizza and tacos. But, hold on, don’t those have cheese in them? This delightful picture book explores how even the fussiest eaters can be tempted to try new flavours. And, if you’re anything like Mike, you might find you develop quite a taste for international cuisine along the way!

Written by Hannah Chandler when she was just 11 years old, I Don’t Like Cheese is hopefully the first of several adventures featuring Mike; now 12, Hannah is already planning the sequel.
