When I first received That's (Not) Mine! in the mail last month, I tore into the package and immediately had to read it. The delightful combination of illustrations and fun words to say made me want to read it aloud! (onomatopoeia, anyone?) I tore through the book the first time, then devoured it again paired with delicious gelato. My third read through of the book was to my 9 year old who gave it his stamp of approval with plenty of giggles.
I'm looking forward to sharing this book with students at my school! I know they too will appreciate the pictures and the story...because I think we can ALL identify with the problems experienced in this story.
While perusing the book jacket, I also learned that the author and illustrator were husband and wife! What a super talented couple.! Read more about both of them below. Also, keep on reading because there's a giveaway at the end! (I KNOW you want your own copy of this book!)
Husband-and-wife team Anna Kang and Christopher Weyant are the creators of You Are (Not) Small, which won the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award and was named a Notable Children’s Book by the American Library Association. They live in New Jersey with their two daughters, Kate and Lily, a guinea pig named Athena, and a hermit crab named Olaf.
Anna, a native New Yorker, grew up believing everything was hers until one day she realized it was her brother’s, too. She received a master’s degree in fine arts from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, where the visual storyteller in her was awakened, forever changing the way she saw art, life, and everything in between. In addition to writing, Anna loves to read, travel, laugh, eat, and nap. Visit her online at www.annakang.com.
Christopher is a cartoonist and illustrator. His work can regularly be seen in the New Yorker. His cartoons are syndicated worldwide and have been featured on the Today Show, Meet the Press, and World News Tonight. Christopher likes to share everything but his personal space on the subway.
