About the Author:

Randall de Sève made her debut as an author with the New York Times bestseller Toy Boat, illustrated by Loren Long. She is also the author of The Duchess of Whimsy, illustrated by her husband, Peter de Sève. Randall lives with him and their two daughters in Brooklyn, New York.



Jen Corace is an artist and freelance illustrator who lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island. Originally from the suburbs of southern New Jersey, she eventually made her way to the Rhode Island School of Design and graduated with a BFA in illustration. Jen has previously collaborated with Amy Krouse Rosenthal on Little Pea, Little Hoot, and Little Hoot.

From Booklist:

Mathilda lives in a small world with green grass and gray sheep. Then she spies an orange balloon floating in the air. She had never seen anything so magnificent. Suddenly, Mathilda has a new thought: “Orange balloon . . . That's me!” The other sheep laugh: “You're a gray sheep. And you'll always be a gray sheep.” But Mathilda disagrees. She identifies herself with the balloon and finds she can fly, and that she's tough like an orange tiger, and as warm as the sun. And if she can be an orange balloon, she can be anything. The message of empowerment may be a bit muddled for the target audience, but they'll certainly enjoy looking at the charming line-and-watercolor illustrations, as effervescent as an orange balloon. And even if little ones don't quite understand how a gray sheep (who actually sports a yellow glow) can be an orange balloon, they'll get the idea that imagination can take them right up in the air.
