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.
About the Author
Husband-and-wife team Anna Kang and Christopher Weyant live in New Jersey with their two daughters. You Are (Not) Small is their first children’s book. They are working on a sequel.
Anna, a native New Yorker, grew up believing she was small until one day she realized that everyone else was big. She received an M.F.A. from University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, where the visual storyteller in her was awakened, forever changing the way she saw art, life, and everything in between. Besides writing, Anna loves to read, travel, laugh, eat, and nap.
A cartoonist and illustrator, Christopher’s cartoons can regularly be seen in The New Yorker magazine. His cartoons are syndicated worldwide and have been featured on The Today Show, Meet the Press, and World News with Diane Sawyer. Christopher likes to think that he is both big and small.

This book not only has a great lesson about perspective and debate, is also hilarious! The story shows the reader there are many ways of looking at something. Just because something is small to you doesn’t mean it is small. It isn’t preachy at – all just fun! The story is completely dialogue, but still gives a full feeling, even with only around 90 words in the whole book! The illustrations are simple, but are great to look at (and the fuzzy bear-like creatures are really cute! The story points out that we really have to think about how we see things (or people (or fuzzy bear things)). The ending is awesome because it involves getting a snack after settling an argument. :) This is a great book! *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
