Jae Soo Liu (illustrator): On a rainy day, some 15 years ago when I was a teacher at a middle school, I watched some students come to school carrying their umbrellas. While watching them, I realized that their physical differences disappeared. What remained were the visual images of the harmonized colors and the movements of the umbrellas. It seemed to me that these children were claiming that they were all equal in spite of their physical differences. That is exactly what I wanted to tell in my book.From Publishers Weekly:
The acoustic, compelling "plink, plink" played on the higher octaves of the piano appropriately sets the mood for paging through Yellow Umbrella, a wordless picture book packaged and designed to be read with an enclosed classical-style music CD. Originally published in South Korea, the volume is both delicate and handsome, with illustrator Jae Soo Liu presenting a high-rise view of colorful umbrellas carried by children on a rainy walk to school. The joyful hues multiply with each successive spread. Composer Dong II Sheen gracefully glides between rhythms throughout the 15 tracks here (a deep, persistent beat accompanies paintings that include a train; jaunty notes sprinkle other rain scenes), maintaining an overall happy tone.
