WHY AM I ME?
written by Paige Britt illustrated by Sean Qualls & Selina Alko
"The beautifully textured artwork by Qualls and Alko adroitly captures the mood and feel of a city in which diversity among people is such a natural occurrence, it doesn’t need to be called out — it simply is." -RJ Palacio, NY Times
"I love the vibrancy of the illustrations and the mood they create as the story follow two children through Brooklyn as they ponder big life questions." -Javaka Steptoe, Caldecott Medalist
"An ordinary trip home becomes a journey in wonder and compassion when we pause to imagine a life other than our own." -Sophie Blackall, Caldecott Medalist
"Why Am I Me? is one of the most beautiful books I have had the great pleasure of seeing in recent years! Such a perfect blend of words and images. Selina and Sean's art literally took my breath away." -Tomie DePaola, Caldecott Medalist
