Where IS that dog?
No one has seen him...
not the space pilots,
nor the robots,
nor the multi-armed
Maybe YOU will be the one to help Joey find him!
When J"oey 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.
