Cyan Corwine’s whimsical and contemplative storybook poem May I Ask You Something? follows a young girl as she discovers the necessary balance between joy and hardship. 

Corwine’s poem bobs and weaves playfully, with a tone that reflects the lilting inquisitiveness of a curious child. 

Her quirky illustrations dance throughout the book, challenging the boundaries of each page, tracking the girl’s physical and emotional maturation as she learns embrace the “rainfall” and the painful facts of life. 

Her questions and emotions are ones we all share: wonder, confusion, frustration, disillusionment, and persistence.

Equal parts playful and thought provoking, May I Ask You Something? is a delightful story that will resonate with anyone who’s ever had a big question and gone looking for an answer.
