The Yes

By Sarah Bee
Illustrated by Satoshi Kitamura

Nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2015 - an empowering story about self-belief and overcoming fears illustrated by the award-winning Satoshi Kitamura.

In a soft comfy nest in a safe warm place there snoozed a great big orange thing called the Yes. He was snug, but the Yes had a Where to go to. So he left his nest and went trundling out. But the Where was an endless place of Nos. They teemed and seethed. They picked and nipped, and snipped and snicked. The Yes yessed in all his goodness and bigness and yesness. But was he strong enough to overcome them?
