Steig's witty dialectic on the nature of existence.
As a yellow and a pink puppet bask in the sun, allowing their paint to dry, they try to determine where they came from. But as soon as they've settled on a solution, a strange man unsettles their theory.

Reviews

Praise for Yellow & Pink

“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
