Summary

Summary

Winner of the 2015 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award

Two fuzzy creatures can't agree on who is small and who is big, until a couple of surprise guests show up, settling it once and for all!

The simple text of Anna Kang and bold illustrations of New Yorker cartoonist Christopher Weyant tell an original and very funny story about size--it all depends on who's standing next to you.

Booklist Review

A big, orange, furry thing and a small, purple, furry thing meet in a field. The big one calls the small one small, and the small one calls the big one big. Accusations escalate, with more big creatures and small creatures arriving to demonstrate the normality of one group and, by extension, the abnormality of the other. Just as things are getting out of control, a huge, green one (at least its legs) and a tiny, pink one arrive, proving that the small ones aren't that small, nor the big ones that big. Everyone is hungry, though, so they all go off to eat. Except for the lone pink, who calls the lone green hairy, and the cycle, presumably, begins again. Kang and Weyant bolster the accessibility of their tidy metaphor by creating sweet-looking, relatable creatures and placing them in an environment with no distinguishing features; children will have no trouble seeing themselves in the situation and the solution.--Barthelmess, Thom Copyright 2014 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

Like Rosenthal and Lichtenheld's Duck! Rabbit!, the debuting husband-and-wife team of Kang and Weyant uses the picture book form for a sophisticated philosophical debate. Weyant, a New Yorker cartoonist, draws two pudgy bearish creatures with bean-like noses-clearly the same species, but different in scale (and in color, it should be noted, though it never comes up). "You are small," says the larger one, pointing an accusatory paw. "I am not small. You are big," replies the smaller one, pointing back. "I am not big," says the larger one, paw to his chest. "See?" A page turn reveals a whole gang of larger creatures just his size. "They are just like me!" But there's a gang of smaller ones, too. The argument changes when a massive, Godzilla-size foot lands in the middle of the spread ("Boom!"), followed by a tiny creature who descends with a parachute. With these revelations, the creatures hone their analysis: "You are big and you are small." Start a discussion on the difficulty of establishing standards-or else just read it and giggle. Ages 2-6.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-This delightful animated short pits two gender- and species-neutral "animals" against each other as they argue about who's big and who's small. It all depends on your point of view, of course, as they discover a humorous lesson of tolerance. Based on the 2015 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award-winning book by Anna Kang and illustrator Christopher Weyant, the piece will make children giggle and laugh out loud as they watch the antics of the two beasties. Virginia Wilkos's animation of the picture book is terrific. Jazz piano music enhances the atmosphere, and the paw graphics for read-along subtitles and chapters are amusing. The DVD comes with excellent lesson plans and ideas for follow-up discussion, along with an illuminating conversation with the author and illustrator, which is suitable for older students. These extras are icing on the cake, providing teachers and librarians with a useful resource that captivates young children. VERDICT Perfect for a discussion starter with children about differing points of view, tolerance, and respect.-Lonna Pierce, MacArthur & Thomas Jefferson Elementary Schools, Binghamton, NY © Copyright 2016.
