Molly Bang's luminous pastels and gentle, rhythmic text tell a sto Catch. Little by little, so no one notices, the ball floats out to sea. All alone, it travels above the fish and below the gulls, and drifts into a storm. Tossed by waves all through the night, it sails ashore next day to a hug and a home. Molly Bang's luminous pastels and gentle, rhythmic text tell a story that is both exciting and reassuring.
The yellow ball is forgotten at the edge of the water. During a beach game, a yellow ball is accidentally tossed out to sea, has adventures, and finds a new home.
Molly Garrett Bang (born December 29, 1943) is an American illustrator. For her illustration of children's books she has been a runner-up for the American Caldecott Medal three times and for the British Greenaway Medal once. Together, pictures and text are at once a lyrical adventure and an invitation to beach lovers and ocean gazers to journey far from shore and explore the wide-open sea.
About the Story I thought of a story of a ball that went to sea and was found again, and this is it. It is a story many people have thought of. One example: two years after the book came out, a woman claimed that it was her own story that she had sent to Morrow several years before, but about a red ball. It was only because we had kept correspondence that was dated before her version was received, and I had notes about it in my journal, that we could reassure her that I'd come up with the idea on my own.
Yellow Ball Hardcover – 4 January 2016. by Molly Bang (Author). Such a simple story that allows the child to find the yellow ball in each picture. I just bought it again for the next generation of kids in my family.
Yellow Ball Hardcover – 4 January 2016. I definitely recommend.
