" Mr. Yes is quite accomplished. He knows magic tricks, origami, and elocution, just for starters. The one thing he has never learned is how to say no... A valuable lesson not often offered to children, delivered with humor." Kirkus Reviews
Hot Off the Press Reading List Inclusion Children's Book Council
"Full-page illustrations evocative of surrealist art make this a visually unique picture book and an effective conversation starter about personal boundaries." School Library Journal
"Sometimes the smallest words are the hardest to say, and 'no' is downright impossible for the ever agreeable Mister Yes.(...) Gil delivers a humorous cautionary tale that unfolds through a creative mix of soft edges and sharp angles, encouraging children, teens and adults to speak honestly and with confidence." Foreword Reviews
Best Children's Picture Book - English Language Honorable Mention at the International Latino Book Awards
"...As an older protagonist, Mr. Yes demonstrates that adults make mistakes, too, and that learning continues into adulthood. Gil (Kibo and the Purple Dragon) concludes with sly encouragement. Saying no, she points out, is a physical skill that can be learned: "Wrinkle up your nose and purse your lips, just like you're going to give someone a kiss." Publishers Weekly
