Mister Yes was quite accomplished and could do a lot of different and fun things. He knew how to make paper elephants that could wave their trunks, how to do the trick where you push needles through balloons without making them pop, but what he had never learned was to say “”no". If Mister Yes was offered ice cream made of hummingbird poop and slug slime he would eat the whole bowl, although he he didn't like it at all! When a salesman asked him to buy a tennis racket with no strings, he thought of refusing, but the word "no" did not come. And he knew that junk of a racket was useless! Mister Yes was very angry at himself because he kept doing things that he didn't feel like doing, simply because he couldn’t pronounce the word “NO!”. One day, though, an unexpected event forced him to shut his mouth and… REFUSE.
A lesson for children (and parents!) that rarely gets the attention it deserves, delightfully delivered with humor and charm. Winner at the 2018 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards. A fun, tongue-in-cheek story for readers of all ages, about the importance of saying no.

"Full-page illustrations evocative of surrealist art make this a visually unique picture book and an effective conversation starter about personal boundaries." [School Library Journal]
