You Are Not Small
By Chris Weyant and Anna Kang
Illustrated by The New Yorker cartoonist Chris Weyant, this debut picture book tells an original and funny story about size.
Two fuzzy creatures can't agree on who is small and who is big, until a couple of surprise guests show up, settling it once and for all!
The simple text of Anna Kang and bold illustrations of The New Yorker cartoonist Christopher Weyant tell an original and very funny story about size - it all depends on who's standing next to you!

Husband-and-wife team Anna Kang and Christopher Weyant live in New Jersey with their two daughters. You Are (Not) Small is their first children's book. The sequel - That's Not Mine - publishes September 2015.
Anna, a native New Yorker, grew up believing she was small until one day she realised that everyone else was big. She attended USC's School of Cinematic Arts, USA, where the visual storyteller in her was awakened, forever changing the way she saw art, life, and everything in between.
A cartoonist and illustrator, Christopher's cartoons can regularly be seen in The New Yorker magazine. His cartoons are syndicated world-wide and have been featured on The Today Show and World News. You can visit him at www.christopherweyant.com.
