Joy Ang

hile visiting the bookstore at SFMOMA in San Francisco I noticed a fun picture book titled I Will Not Read This Book which is illustrated by ACAD alumni Joy Ang. The picture book written by Cece Meng is the story of how the ultimate reluctant reader became a book lover.The little boy in I Will Not Read This Book has a lot of excuses, because if there is one thing he doesn’t want to do, it’s read this book. He won’t read it even if you hang him upside down by one toe, over a cliff, with sharks down below. And you know what? You. Can’t. Make. Him.


"Oh, yes, you will read this book. You'll be reeled in by the feisty, angular, frequently exciting digital illustrations, not to mention that confrontational title."--"Booklist" "Suggest[s] that sharing a book with a parent can be reassuring, and [the] cherrful use of imagination makes for an enjoyable read." --"Booklist"
