Mathilda and the Orange Balloon

by Randall de Sève, illustrated by Jen Corace

It's natural to want to keep reading your favorite childhood books to your kids, but there are wonderful books for kids coming out all the time worthy of a shot at becoming your family's next favorite book. Mathilda and the Orange Balloon is a contender to put on your list.We're always charmed by artist/illustrator Jen Corace's work (see our post on Hansel and Gretel) and her imagery here is among the friendliest, happiest we've seen it (orange has that effect on people). The affirming story by Randall de Sève is charming as she convinces the reader that, indeed, a sheep can be an orange balloon. You'll just have to read it to see what we mean.

Mathilda and the Orange Balloon is published by Harper Collins. Find out more here.
