Praise For The Yellow Balloon

"Recalling Anno's classic journeys and the popular Waldo books (not to mention Lamorisse's Red Balloon), a wordless Dutch import invites readers to track a balloon's world travels. . . . Dematons's art is both handsome and engagingly colorful, and the offbeat juxtapositions and cleverly concealed stories add a lot of interest." --The Horn Book

"A delightful ride for armchair travelers."--Publishers Weekly

"This stunning offering has broad appeal."--School Library Journal
