Description - I Do Not Like Stories by Andrew Larsen
A playful, multilayered tale about the power of the stories we tell ourselves. Here is a boy who is sure of one thing: he does NOT like stories. Not stories about waking up in the morning, or people in space, or fish in the sea, or planes, or trains, or boring old buildings. We see the boy's experiences play out over the course of his day. The one thing this contrarian boy loves is his cat - whose day is depicted through graphic panels in a funny, parallel side narrative. The cheerful cat searches for the boy all day, chasing anything yellow, the colour of the boy's bright backpack, and causing mess and mayhem throughout the city. In the end, the boy concedes he might like a story - if it's the right one (do you know any stories about a cat?). Art in a muted palette is accented with pops of yellow in this charming book about how the stories we tell ourselves have the power to shape our days. The visual details support literacy skills, add humour, and are sure to engage young readers - even those who are sure they don't like stories.
