While playing fetch with his loyal dog, a young boy throws the ball a bit too far and soon the enthusiastic pet is off on a citywide adventure--tracking its every bounce, roll, and hop along the way before bringing it back.

About the Author:

James Yang's prize-winning work has appeared in many magazines, including Graphis, Newsweek, Forbes, Fortune, and Sports Illustrated, as well as in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

When Joey and Jet, his first book for children, was published in 2004, Publishers Weekly praised it as "visually enticing." The Horn Book described it as "a minimal-vocabulary depiction of boy and dog [which] quickly segues into a lively tour of prepositions...a comical and satisfying story." Booklist called it a "clever, energetic romp." Kirkus Reviews declared it "an excellent introduction to what can usually be a difficult concept for youngsters." And School Library Journal said "libraries will want to fetch copies for themselves."

The designer of "Clockman," a sculpture on display at the National Museum of American History, Mr. Yang and his wife live in New York City.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. Joey (a boy) and Jet (his dog) have a simple adventure that is enhanced by a digital format. Joey, a round-headed kid (think Charlie Brown for the twenty-first century) has a ball. His black-and-white dog (yes, a little Snoopy-like) watches as Joey tosses it. Jet chases it--among the birds, through the trees, on the water, up and down the hill. Jet finally brings the ball back, only to have Joey throw it again. Intensely visual, this also provides a way for children to get the feel of prepositions, which are in boldface, and the way they relate to space: the ball goes between tables and over the roof. But it's the artwork that's the draw here. Using digital pen-and-ink, Yang has created simple yet intriguing landscapes. For instance, trees are black crooked lines overlaid with lime-green leaves set against a mottled-orange background. Groups of tables and chairs are identical, but their 1950s shapes and colors make them standouts. Fun to look at, this is a clever, energetic romp. Ilene Cooper
