Book Details

Yellow & Pink is a witty picture book by William Steig, the creator of Shrek.

On a fine day, a thin, yellow puppet and a round, pink puppet sit in the sun. They wonder where they came from. Were they an accident of nature, created by a series of possible but improbable events? Did someone create them? They discuss their theories, and think they may have an answer. But just as they settle on a solution, a man arrives who raises new questions.

Praise for Yellow & Pink:

"One marvels at the expressiveness, the nearness to animation, of Steig's vibrant drawings." -The Washington Post Book World

"A comic fable that has more clout than the most fervent homily." -Publishers Weekly

"Illustrated with simple three-color drawings, this is a book that will delight adults as well as children and lead to some very interesting discussions!" -Children's Literature

In The News

“In Yellow & Pink . . . Steig has created a pair of characters who seem the embodiments of his bright esthetic. Named for the colors of their freshly painted costumes, Pink and Yellow are wooden dolls left out to dry in the sun. They are odd fellows, bumpkins, incorrigibles, clowns, countrymen of Beckett's Vladimir and Estragon, Laurel and Hardy. Philosophers both, they no sooner 'awaken,' come to life, than they begin to ponder by what means they might have arrived in this world. 'How,' Yellow demands . . . 'could anyone make something like me, so intricate, so perfect? Or, for that matter, like you.' . . . One marvels at the expressiveness, the nearness to animation, of Steig's vibrant drawings.” —Leonard S. Marcus, The Washington Post Book World
