From Caldecott Honor author/illustrator Elisha Cooper comes Yes & No , a timeless tale of friendship, adjusting your perspective, and the joys (and trials) of siblinghood.

Good morning, good morning. It's time to wake up!

Join a cat and puppy pair through their day--the ups of being fed and romping through grass, and the downs of days that are too short and things that don't go as planned--as they realize that sometimes the very best thing that can happen is just being together.

Booklist Review: "As a cat returns from its nighttime prowls, the narrator asks if her pets are ready for the day. While the awakening puppy eagerly replies "Yes," the sleek black cat grumpily retorts "No" and settles down for a snooze on their shared blanket. The puppy's body language is spot on: he's excited about everything from eating to playing to going outside. Meanwhile, the aloof feline eludes the frantic dog by climbing onto the mantle and hiding in the bathtub. The puppy's enthusiasm and his frenetic activities are engaging as he flits from one occupation to another, voicing "yes, yes, yes" as his boundless energy sends him all around the backyard--the calm cat perches on the fence and in a tree. After the pup is scolded for tearing up the yard, the two animals venture into the countryside where they sit comfortably together, taking in the beauty and peace surrounding them. Eight wordless pages with serene pictures extending from margin to margin reveal the companionship the two have forged during their outing. When called to go inside, the puppy's demeanor (and repeated "no, no, no") reveal his disappointment that the day is now over. Delightful ink-and-watercolor illustrations outline everything in thick black ink and leave plenty of white space as a backdrop to the animals' perfect day."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "An adorably over-the-top puppy and a fastidious black cat offer a study in contrasts in this sweetly comic interlude by Caldecott Honoree Cooper (Big Cat, Little Cat). An unseen narrator's prompts guide the two throughout a day. "My dears, are you awake?" "Yes," says the puppy eagerly; "No," responds the cat. Asked if they would like something to eat, the pup springs into the air. "Yes, I would! I would like to eat something very much." (The cat, its back to readers, demurs.) Sent outside, the hound engages in frenetic backyard play ("gnar, gnar"), while the feline remains aloof nearby. When the two are banished to a meadow behind the house, though, there's a moment of sublime calm before evening brings a pleasing turnabout to the animals' respective roles. Cooper's rich black line draws the eye around the page, as the individuals interact with--and ignore--each other in ink and watercolor sequences that range from intimate to sweeping. Plenty of artists have captured the dueling personalities of dogs and cats; this sustained conversation offers giggles, reassurance, and warmth. Readers may even recognize themselves in a certain hound's bedtime reluctance to say goodbye to the day's pleasures. Ages 2--6. (Apr.)"
