About this title


Meet the Snatchberrys and Grabingtons, two families who have topped all other I-Wants and Gimmies with their self-centered games. When a member from each family meet, they begin fighting over a free kitten they found. But when danger from the sky threatens to harm the kitty, they learn that having everything isn’t as important as sharing with others. Witty verse and colorful illustrations make this an instant favorite for kids of all ages.

From the Inside Flap:

"With his 'The I-wants And The Gimmies', Taylor Oberbey creates a whimsical story about the importance of sharing and working together. His quirky characters are extremely naughty, face a ridiculous danger and affect a change of heart all without any heavy–handed moralizing.  This is a funny book for parents to enjoy with their youngest children." --Molly Alicki Corriveaum, MFA, Professor of Illustration, Kendall College of Art and Design, Ferris State University "Using fun-to-read-aloud verse that sounds like Dr Seuss and illustrations that mix Richard Scarry's bright designs with the whimsy of Mercer Mayer, 'The I-Wants and the Gimmies' offers a spritely tale of finding the joy of giving. Old-fashioned, fun, and with a good lesson delivery, Taylor Overbey's colorful story should find a place on every child’s bedtime reading list." --David Mathew Rosen, Ph.D., President O'More College of Design "I found his new book very engaging and well-thought out.  The illustrations and the messages he is communicating to the readers through these illustrations flow very nicely and are certainly engaging. He has been able to express something that is rather important and serious in a fun and at times even funny way.  Overall, I found this to be a great children's book and a fresh alternative to what is currently available in the market.  I look forward to seeing the final copy when it gets published and I am certainly getting one for my son!" -- Stylianos G. Vayanos, Ph.D., Ph.D., M.B.A.
