PRAISE FOR What Is Punk? by Eric Morse and Anny Yi
What is Punk? is fun, sophisticated and beautifully illustrated introduction to the music genre for kids—or adults.”
—New York Daily News
“A fun little book intended to serve as (rhyming) curriculum for little punks learning their Punk History 101. . . . Sid, Glenn, and Milo meet Wallace and Gromit.”
“Pairing Yi’s Wallace & Gromit-style clay pictorials with Morse’s rhyming ride through the history of punk music across the globe, the children’s book is ready to raise the next generation of riot grrrls. . . . You’re going to want to give What Is Punk? as a gift at every baby shower this year. Just don’t be surprised if your niece ends up bleaching her hair blonde and tearing up her leather jacket at age 6.”
