About the book

An adventurous yellow ribbon escapes from a little girl's pigtail and finds lots of places to hide before I'm sure it is recovered and tied up once again where it belongs. 

It morphs into many different places and shapes such as a lion's mane, mustard on a hotdog, chopsticks, a trapeze artist's swing, a pencil, a warm winter's scarf, a walking cane for an elderly man and a beautiful potted plant,  just to name a few. 

Kids will love discovering its new hiding place on each and every page. This creative, wordless, board book with its delightful paper collages is both entertaining and engaging for that particular age group and maybe even younger.  I highly recommend it.

Meet the author/illustrator

When I was a kid, I loved books and going to the theatre. With my brothers and sister, I performed many plays and circuses in the backyard.

I went to high school in Toronto, but decided to work instead of going to college. I had lots of different jobs before becoming a writer, including a theatre usher, a cookie seller, a waitress, a sailor, a photo stylist and a toy designer. I had my own company, called Jesse Design, for fifteen years. 

I lived in New York City for thirty years, but am now back in Canada, in Stratford, Ontario, where my parents grew up. 

I have two daughters named Hannah and Nell.
