An escaped balloon embarks on an uproarious journey through New York City in "a wordless picture book that playfully echoes the style of Eloise and the substance of the "Red Balloon"" ("Booklist", starred review). Full color.

Publisher Marketing:
While she's in the Metropolitan Museum with her grandmother, a little girl leaves her prized yellow balloon tied to a railing outside. But its string becomes untied, and the balloon embarks on an uproarious journey through New York City. With an ever-increasing cast of wacky urban characters in tow, it soars past a host of landmarks. Eighteen famous paintings and sculptures are reproduced in this delightful, wordless book that explores the magical relationship between art and life.
