Yo! Yes?

Yo! Yes?

by Chris Raschka Illustrated by Chris Raschka

Chris Raschka's Caldecott Honor classic is a simple yet dramatic story about friendship.

Two lonely boys who don't know each other meet on a city street. Brought together with a simple "Yo!" answered by the other one's "Yes?" and the bounce of a basketball, this modern classic will strike a chord with every child who's ever longed for a friend.

"With a beautifully balanced, economical style, the book illumines the peaks and pitfalls of getting acquainted, and puts in a good word for brotherhood as well." — School Library Journal, starred review
