Can I Build Another Me?, Shinsuke Yoshitake. Hardback, 2016.
Can I Build Another Me? follows a small boy’s musings and discoveries as he attempts to build a replica of himself to do the boring things he dislikes. A surprisingly philosophical book which explores the concepts of self. What makes you you? Are you the same as you used to be? Are you different things to different people? You are a lot harder to replace than you think!
We absolutely adore the books of Shinsuke Yoshitake. Translated from the original Japanese, the simple, crisp illustrations and spare prose are highly entertaining. This is a book which can be revisited again and again.
