Book Description from Back Cover

In the tradition of Ed Young's Caldecott Honor-winning Seven Blind Mice, this ancient fable from the Middle East comes to life in colorful collage art.

Once there was a boy who wanted only one thing: a little bit of knowledge. Where do you find knowledge? From a Grand Master! But the Grand Master wants something first: a carpet. When the boy goes to get one, he discovers: the carpetmaker needs some thread ... the spinner woman needs some goat hair ... the goalkeeper needs a goat ... and so on. "What about me?" each one asks.

Will the boy ever find a way to fill everyone's needs-and get some knowledge for himself? He does!

Background on Ed Young

Ed Young's world-famous picture book illustrations have won three Caldecott awards: Lon Po Po, winner of the Caldecott Medal in 1990, and Seven Blind Mice and The Emperor and the Kite, which won Caldecott Honors in 1993 and 1968, respectively. Mr. Young has written and illustrated dozens of other children's books as well, in a variety of styles from black-and-white charcoal illustrations to the vibrant cut-paper collage images of Philomel favorites Seven Blind Mice, A Pup Just for Me, Pinocchio, and now What About Me?

Mr. Young was born in Tientsin, China, and brought up in Shanghai. He attended art schools in Illinois, California, and New York, where he now lives with his family.
