Annotation:
A little girl named Emily turns a yellow balloon into a treasured playmate. This beautiful, sparingly written picture book with a real, child-like view point, follows Emily as she interacts with a bright yellow balloon, enjoying it thoroughly from the moment it's tied onto her finger. But after playing, flower picking, and crown-making, the worst happens: the balloon flies into a tree. Is there any hope of getting it back? With a subtle palette of beige, white, and gray, accompanied by touches of red, yellow and blue.

Praise

"The brevity of text combined with relatively simple illustrations makes this tale perfectly suited to a toddler's interest...." 04/15/2006

"With its soft charcoal outlines, three-color images and matte pages, Japanese author-artist Sakai's book looks as if it could have been published in the early '60s, yet her theme is timeless...Sakai's quiet voice represents loss as small children experience it...A dog-eared favorite in the making." 05/29/2006
