Mathilda and the Orange Balloon by Randall de Seve

Do you dream big?  Mathilda does!

In this new picture book, Mathilda and the Orange Balloon, by Randall de Seve, you meet a small sheep living in a plain gray (everywhere) meadow.  A bright orange balloon flies by and Mathilda is captivated.  She is curious and begins to wonder about it and chase it.  The other older sheep are unimpressed and laugh when Mathilda dreams of being an orange balloon. She imagines herself as an orange balloon flying and happy. Her friends realize with imagination and dreams anything is possible.

Randall de Seve is also the author of Toy Boat and The Duchess of Whimsy.  Check out this kid's question answer interview at Powells to get to know Randall and illustrator (of Toy Boat) Loren Long.
