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.
Kindergarten-Grade 1—Puzzlehead and his friends are puzzle pieces exploring their world to find where they will fit. The protagonist's pals seem to have an easier time of it than he does. When he finally finds his niche, away from the others, they invite him back into the circle by asking, "Don't you want to play with us?" He agrees, and the five pieces form a puzzle of their own. The text, varying in size, flows in waves across the pages, creating movement for the colorful, digitally rendered characters in different shapes and colors. Good use of white space emphasizes the simple pieces' minimalist features. However, this book may end up being too puzzling for young audiences.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
