9782733819425: Zebedee's Balloon

Zebedee has got a balloon which he brings everywhere with him. But one
day the balloon disappears! Where is it? Zebedee wanders in the night in order to
find it. He is afraid, and feels lonely without his precious balloon. Will they finally find the balloon? A beautiful story about friendship and trust.

Reproduced on heavy, buff cardstock, the arresting black-and-white woodcuts, with pops of red for the balloon and its impostors, exemplify the organic charm of the medium. Crisp lines are softened with inky bits and shards, and flat backgrounds swirl with wood-grain movement. [ ] this fresh, graphic synthesis of a counting and bedtime story promises to delight young viewers (and their grown-ups) with an eye for artistry and detail.
--The Booklist

French artist Philipponneau’s striking wood engravings are the centerpiece of this counting story; he revels in the textures and contrasts that the medium offers, and his folk art like depictions of the night forest are handsome enough to stand on their own. [ ]The rough-hewn artwork and thick matte paper stock are lovely.
--Publishers Weekly

"Zebedee's Balloon" is a touching read for parents to read along with children, highly recommended. Also from Auzou Publishing and Alice Brière-Haquet is "Peter and the Moon" (9782733819401, $16.95), a cute tale of a young man who wants to give the moon to his mother, wonderfully illustrated by Celia Chauffrey.

From Booklist:

Zebedee, a striped, nocturnal fellow, depends upon his “Ball,” a soft, cottony toy (in reality a balloon), which keeps the dangers of the night at bay. When his balloon escapes him, his sense of security disappears with it. The other animals of the forest—one owl, two doves, three snails, and four worms—help him search, but every time they think they’ve spotted the balloon, it turns out to be something else altogether. Yet although they never find “Ball,” Zebedee finds 10 friends who offer more than enough comfort. Reproduced on heavy, buff cardstock, the arresting black-and-white woodcuts, with pops of red for the balloon and its impostors, exemplify the organic charm of the medium. Crisp lines are softened with inky bits and shards, and flat backgrounds swirl with wood-grain movement. The rhyme and scansion of the verse translation from the French are often awkward, but this fresh, graphic synthesis of a counting and bedtime story promises to delight young viewers (and their grown-ups) with an eye for artistry and detail. Preschool-Grade 3. --Thom Barthelmess
