Shinsuke Yoshitake


A wildly imaginative story to encourage young readers to question the world around them. For children aged 7+

See Inside


Can I Build Another Me? follows a child’s hilarious, wildly inventive train of thought as he decides to make a clone of himself – and starts to ponder what makes him HIM. Is it the scar on his knee or his sticky palms? Is it his love of acorns or the way he winks? The more he thinks about it, the more complicated it becomes...


'Perfect for children who wonder what makes them unique … spins its philosophical plates with humour and dexterity'

'It is a clever book that opens up all sorts of avenues of discussion; very well done '
Parents in Touch

'Injected with humour and quirky illustrations, this book will appeal to a younger audience and help them consider their own identity'
Picture Books Blogger

'Philosophy for children this certainly is: I lost count of how many times it opens up space for reflection and discussion. It’s also totally empowering, funny, bound to induce self-reflection ... all build up to one thing when it comes to the latest Yoshitake and that one thing is, genius'
Red Reading Hub

'A very funny, marvellously philosophical picture book full of acute and humorous observations … each page offers an opportunity for conversation'
