Synopsis

A playful journey into a child's imagination.

"In my new yellow shirt
I am a duck quacking,splashing through a big puddle of sun.
Watch out! Now I'm a taxi-- HONK! HONK! --zooming down the street."

When a little boy gets a plain yellow shirt for his birthday, his friend Sam thinks it's a very ordinary gift. But the birthday boy has other ideas. Before long, he has transformed himself into many wonderful yellow things.

In this cheerful story, Eileen Spinelli's energetic text and Hideko Takahashi's vibrant pictures prove that, with imagination, the sky's the limit.
