The Yes

Publisher: Anderson Press


A glorious, life-affirming tale about the Yes, a great big orange thing, who decides to leave his cosy nest to explore the Where. But everywhere he goes, he is plagued by Nos. Swarms of Nos are determined to prevent the Yes from trying anything new. He wants to climb a tree to reach glowing yellow fruit. The tree is tall and the Yes is big and heavy. A thick cloud of Nos tell him he's being silly, the tree is too big, so he'll fall. They pick and bite and nag and niggle. But the Yes climbs the tree - Yes!

Stunning illustrations complement this quirky story to encourage reluctant adventurers to overcome their anxieties and grasp life with both hands.
