One yellow ribbon unties itself from a child's hair and transforms into a winter scarf, a farmer's field and a lion's mane, among many other magical things, in this delightful board book by celebrated pa-per artist Marthe Jocelyn.

Jocelyn's paper collages in this wordless search-and-find adventure will encourage little ones to look closely at the world around them and explore what they see.

CM: Canadian Review of Materials
"Jocelyn's collages continue to be alive with colour and textures, and they invite their young viewers to not just locate the repurposed ribbon or patch but to explore the pages' details…Art teachers in schools might want to acquire One Yellow Ribbon and One Patch of Blue to use as exemplars for divergent artistic thinking."
Resource Links
"Children will enjoy discovering where the yellow ribbon is hidden on each page. Once again, Marthe Jocelyn uses fabric and paper to meticulously create the collage illustrations. Her attention to detail is precise…All of the pages are a rich resource for developing vocabulary."
School Library Journal
"This wordless board book from the creator of One Patch of Blue is a visual treat…A lovely board book that is a bit out of the box."
Youth Services Book Review
"This is a cute idea executed in a clean and playful fashion."
Kirkus Reviews
"A cleverly illustrated wordless outing that is a natural progression for readers of Jocelyn's previous board books."
Kiss the Book blog
"Beautifully illustrated in mixed media (and one yellow ribbon) this will encourage the reader to look carefully at the pictures and find the matching piece."
Must Read Literature: K thru YA

“The pictures are each singularly creative, and with the tie that binds, a yellow ribbon, unique. As a board book, this book will have many lives, and as a book without text, it will have many stories.”
