This is a simple tale but a good one. Wisdom is hard to come by and can’t be ladled out like soup. When a boy strives to gain “a little bit of knowledge”, he finds himself ranging far and wide, meeting all sorts of people and developing the kind of fortitude you only find in quests or in trying to clean out the garage after a decade of neglect.

With collages of bright color and individual characters, each with their own need, “What about Me?” is one of those stories told “in the round”, in which a character wanders from one person to the next in order to accommodate each person’s needs. It’s fun to read and lovely to look at with sharply defined edges to the illustrations. The text has serifs which convey a slightly foreign feel that ably matches and complements the setting of the story.
