Mr. Yes could do a lot of different, funny things … but
he’d never learned how to say “no.”
So what about you? Have you ever smiled and said “yes,”
when what you really wanted to say was “no”?
A fun story for readers of all ages, about the importance of
communication, and being assertive.

“…As an older protagonist, Mr. Yes demonstrates that adults make mistakes, too, and that learning continues into adulthood. Gil (Kibo and the Purple Dragon) concludes with sly encouragement. Saying no, she points out, is a physical skill that can be learned: “Wrinkle up your nose and purse your lips, just like you’re going to give someone a kiss.”
