Overview

A picture book that understands what you and I mean in the single word "No!"

Book Intro

(English) <NO WAY!>

A child as brazen as a shining round chestnut opens the book with a declaration: “No way. Really, really, no way.” The twelve animals of the Zodiac—rats, oxen, tigers, rabbits, dragons, snakes, horses, sheep, monkeys, roosters, dogs, and pigs—are of the same mind. The careless things we’ve learned to say, the assumptions we made based on appearance, judgments masquerading as compliments, how cruel such words can be. To a rat, the hopeful phrase “sunlight even finds its way into a mouse hole” means the mouse’s house has collapsed, and monkeys do not fall from branches but jump off, dreaming of flight. The grand ridge of an ox’s back so high it blocks rainclouds in their path, the upset expression of a rabbit as a magician pulls it out of a hat by its ears, the happy flaring of a horse’s nostrils as it runs in the wind, the hand and eye of the reader pause at the many spectacles and occasions for thought in each page. Upon close inspection, these various declarations of “No way!” are not mere prickly stubbornness, but the self-affirmation of a child who has just begun to grow up. These small assertions of selfness from our tiny characters, who are just starting to find a balance between themselves and the outside world, are as poignant and true as the moment a sprout bursts forth from a seed.

With a firm “No way!” for its title, this book shares with its reader the often misunderstood four-year-old going through a “no way” phase, who tends to be simply dismissed as cute or stubborn.

The painter, whose powerful brushstrokes have been seen in many notable children’s books, expresses the explosive energy of the characters while adding in little details to be gleefully discovered, wonderfully enhancing the theme of the words.

 

(中國語/中文) <不是!>

可爱机灵的小孩打开书架大声地宣布,“不是,真的不是”。十二生肖中的老鼠、牛、老虎、兔子、龙、蛇、马、羊、猴子、鸡、狗、猪也是一样的心情。从以前开始,在那些不经意间说出的话、仅凭外表就做出的揣测、虚情假意的称赞背后,是无尽的苦恼。韩国俗语“老鼠洞里也有阳光照进的日子”其实是老鼠洞倒塌的那天;“猴子也会从树上掉下来”其实是开始追随内心想要跳下去;黄牛身上雄壮的脊梁,连雷阵雨也奈何不了;小兔子被拽着耳朵从魔术师的帽子里提了出来,一脸的气愤;矫健的马儿喷着幸福的鼻息,在风中驰骋。这本书的内容精彩丰富,每一页都让人爱不释手。仔细倾听那一声声“不是”,会发现这并不是固执,而是内心深处萌生的自我肯定。想要努力找到内外平衡的小小心中萌生出的存在感,就如同种子发芽的瞬间般令人动容。
