"Consider this children’s book to be 2015’s version of Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Edmund, an adorable ball of yarn, sets off to explore the world. He meets interesting people and visits exciting places, but ultimately, finds that he can’t head out into the world alone without a little support from his family.”
Real Simple

This delightful debut picture book celebrates both the joy of venturing into the unknown and the value of staying connected to loved ones back home. It stars a little ball of yarn who can’t resist the tug of adventure, the twists and turns of discovery, or the comfort of family and friends.
Edmund is a ball of yarn and a ball of energy! From the time he could roll, he’s been bouncing down his front steps to explore, and his parents have always been right there to reel him in and roll him back up. But now that he’s bigger, Edmund is ready to discover the wonders of the world. Everything is new and exciting—but sometimes, even a little ball of yarn gets lonely, and there’s nothing better than the comfort of being around those he cares about.

Editorial Reviews

“Sunny illustrations. . . . [Edmund’s] trailing tail, goofy smile, twirly ‘bangs,’ baseball cap and jaunty backpack will allow young readers to identify with him. . . . They will smile with recognition when he meets ‘interesting people’ in the shapes of bottles, toilet paper rolls, buttons and even a friendly pincushion. They will undoubtedly cheer when Edmund exhausts the possibilities of travel and rolls himself home to family and friends. . . . This long extended metaphor filled with laugh-worthy wordplay will comfort children and parents alike.” — Kirkus Reviews“Animated with bright colors and lots of action. . . . Tightly woven with wordplay, this is a whimsical story of family ties.”—School Library Journal   “Kolb has a bright, clean drawing style that will remind readers of their favorite contemporary animation, and his panoramas make it fun to follow Edmund’s travels and the trail of yarn he leaves in his wake. . . . Impressive for its visual playfulness and its astute take on child development.”—Publishers Weekly
