One day, Emily gets a balloon. By the end of the afternoon, the balloon is no longer just a plaything—Emily and the balloon are friends. But when the balloon blows away, what will Emily do? Sweet, compelling, and filled with beautifully evocative illustrations, the timeless innocence of a story about the wonder and discovery of friendship makes this deceptively simple book a classic.

This book was really adorable, the story was beautifully drawn and was simple enough to let the young readers follow along. Emily is a very simple and loveable character also. My children loved it!

The story and illustrations are absolutely beautiful and charming...what a wonderful story. I bought this book for my daughter and since have bought three more copies as gifts. This book should become a classic. Wonderful Book-Five Stars

This quiet book for toddlers follows a day Emily spends with her new yellow balloon. The text is spare, which works well with the sketchy illustrations.
