Little one, / whoever you are, / wherever you are, / there are little ones / just like you / all over the world. So begins the Australian author Mem Fox s joyful picture book "Whoever You Are," a celebration of the world s diverse cultures, both our similarities and differences. Leslie Straub s innovative, colorful, folk art style oil paintings of children from all corners of the globe are bordered with photographs of hand-carved, bejeweled frames and they all reflect Fox s message that no matter where we come from, within our hearts Joys are the same, / and love is the same. / Pain is the same, / and blood is the same. A gem!"

Horrified

I wish I read the reviews before buying this book! I was absoluately horrified to see that the pages of this book have been cropped! What is this!? A Chinese knock off!? I am so upset with the Book Depository right now! This is a beautiful book but this copy of it is horrible! Avoid at all costs!show more

Cropped edges

Although this version of this book is the cheapest available from the Book Depository, it has substantially cropped edges. Each page has a thick, intricate border, as if the picture were in a picture frame. On every page, this border is partially, or on some pages completely cropped out. I've read it as it is supposed to be presented, so I know that this is NOT as intended by Mem Fox. Although it is potentially a plus that the picture itself is larger as a result, the variability of the cropping makes it rather unsightly. I've never seen a printing mistake this profound in a legitimately printed book, and I question the Singaporean printing house. I suggest spending a few extra dollars and buying a different version of this book. The story itself has an important message for children of inclusiveness and tolerance..show more

Who ever you are, this is a great read

This book is simply a joy to read to children. It freely offers them the opportunity to question differences and helps to teach them that everyone is united. A must for every home library.show more

"Another brilliant Mem Fox book. It's long been popular in our family. The artwork is captivating. The littler members of our family enjoy finding 'the flying man' in each picture. A wonderful, yet simple way of learing how we can be so similar while looking very different."show more
