This book lost me with "siamese twins." An editor should have caught and corrected this very outdated term. Other than that I think this would go over the heads of most kids. Flaps are cool.

Graphically, this is a very cool book. I follow JooHee Yoon on Instagram, and I love her style. I love the orange and blue color palate, and the illustrations are so interesting and fun. The text in this book is an interesting collection of aphorisms, like an apple a day keeps the doctor away and too many cooks spoil the broth. There were some I had never heard of, and I would not have included the term "Siamese twins" in this book if I were an editor. This feels like it might be best ...more

Thumbs UP: My favorite picture book of 2019 (along with Cha's TINY FEET BETWEEN THE MOUNTAINS). It is playful, filled with intriguing sayings and idioms to ponder about and, of course, JooHee Yoon's gorgeous artwork, which is head and shoulders above the mainstream kid lit crowd.

Wonderful for repeated readings to discover hidden treats among the drawings and reflect upon the sayings, I would have loved this book as a child!

An illustrated list of aphorisms like "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones." This book is notable for its unique, bright orange and blue illustrations: "a combination of printmaking, drawing, and the computer. Two Pantone colors were used to produce this book." It's unfortunate that the book uses the outdated term "Siamese twins" instead of "conjoined twins."
