Following the events of terror in Paris, France in January 2015, the world mourned the loss of many lives to hate crimes. For the citizens of The United States of America, we were reminded of 9/11. Many things changed for our nation following that historical day. The people of France are some of our oldest allies. To forget them in their time of loss would be to deny the cause for which we fought the Revolutionary War.

In response to the violence that shook the world, we have a very special message for our youth and lovers of liberty. A new children's picture-book, filled with the wonder and imagination of childhood... a witness to free will!

Little Red Balloon is a symbol of a desire for life and liberty;
a reminder to liberate others when they have been downtrodden. May this book motivate you to be a beacon of light in a dark world; an advocate for free will... and may you be the one who cuts the string when someone is tied down.

This book is a hymn to freedom, a collaboration between Desiree Finkbeiner, American best-selling author, and Jean-Luc Adde, award-winning French photographer, to honor the friendship of two nations, the United States and France.

On every page we find whimsical images of human beings with animal heads, they look at us with mischief, hilarious and sometimes strange, set in a faerie-like imaginary world; through the pages, a little red balloon travels, twirls, plays with the reader... a symbol of freedom with a hint of nostalgia.
