Stop, Go, Yes, No!

A Story of Opposites

illustrated by Mike Twohy


About the Book

From the creator of the Geisel Honor winner Oops, Pounce, Quick, Run! comes another irresistible tale that perfectly illustrates the humor of opposites.

A cat stops. The dog goes.

Dog says yes! Cat… no.

In the vein of Tom and Jerry, Road Runner, Bugs Bunny, and other classic cartoons, Stop, Go, Yes, No! features an adorably enthusiastic dog and a less-enthusiastic cat on a chase full of silly and exciting turns, with a heartwarming twist.

Don't miss this funny picture book about opposites from celebrated New Yorker cartoonist Mike Twohy.
