Charlotte Dematons


A delightful ride for armchair travellers.

Writer and illustrator Charlotte Dematons infuses this picture book with an enchanting appeal. Lovely watercolours present a great and diverse planet, teeming with life at all times of day and night. People and animals of every shape, colour, size and costume are portrayed, busy at work and play. As the yellow balloon floats through several historical periods – ancient, medieval, and contemporary – and through both natural and supernatural realms, young readers can look out for the small blue car, the fakir on his flying carpet, and the scoundrel in prison garb. This fascinating story takes young readers on a lively and fun-filled journey around the globe.
