Four brief "stories" about parents, trains, and cows, or is it really all one story? The author recommends careful inspection of words and pictures to both minimize and enhance confusion.

I could honestly say that I didn't know what to think about this book from looking at the cover, and when I opened the book I was even more confused!
Where do I start? We all read from left to right...right? So why then are all the vivid illustrations in all four corners of this now opened book visually communicates to me and calls me away from the natural reading order.

I resisted and read left to right. It turns out that the book has four stories that are interconnected but could be read independently of each other except for one issue, there would be that connection that visual connection that draws you in and compels you to the other stories. I read it the right way wrong and then I read it the wrong way right. Great story or stories about a something blocking a train from passing and a platform travelers waiting on a train getting so bored of waiting they began to make hats and clothing out of newspaper and when the train finally arrives they in exasperation and excitement toss the homemade clothing into the air...and about normal parent going seemingly crazy coming home in newspaper clothing and finally cows causing problems blocking a train. Great idea, excellent book, enjoyed it immensely. ( )

A tale within a tale within a tale. Readers must pay close attention to what they see, an as the title suggests, not all situations can be viewed as black or white. ( )

Black and White by David Macaulay, won the 1991 Caldecott Medal for best picture book. I can understand why is did. It is creative, unusual in style, and a refreshing take on how to define what a (picture book) story is. Each quadrant of four on the double page spreads, is illustrated with a different medium, tone, and motif. The question of whether or not it's four stories in one book, or 4 mini stories that tell a fifth, more mysterious tale, is never answered and the reader is left to decide for themselves what to take from Black and White. I think it is a creative and fun way to tell a story, but I also think a child might get more out of looking at it for themselves and dissecting the images and text more than an adult might. But then again, it wasn't designed to be for adults. ( )

This book was very entertaining. Black and White shows "four stories" going on at one time in one book. Each page has two frames creating four total frames each time you turn the page. It is interesting because the way the book is perceived can be different for every reader. You could piece the stories together, maybe pieces of each story, or just take them all as separate stories. I think its awesome how the Macaulay can use his own creativity to allow younger students to gather different perspectives of one book and display their own creativity. ( )

At first, this book may appear to tell four stories but after examining one can see the connected themes and items within the stories. The toy train and actual train show connections. As well as the newspapers reappearing. When the newspaper left the train station and the parents were dressed in the newspaper when coming home is the point of the story I realized this connection. Is this book multiple stories or one? The title black and white symbols the cows and criminal in the book although it can have a deeper meaning that everything in life has grey areas and isn't simply black and white. I love that the meaning is provoked by the curiosity of the reader and left up to their perspective and interpretation. ( )
