A wonderfully quirky picture book about a child's search for identity and the need to belong - and a glorious celebration of the colour yellow.

'A quirky, totally original, visual poem to the child's innate celebration of all that is creative in the human heart.' - Dr Robyn Sheahan-Bright

On Friday nights, all day Saturday and most of Sunday I stay with Na-na and Grumpy Yellow.

One Saturday, I got lost. Twice.

The first time, a big prawn found me.

The second time, I found my own way home.

Shortlisted for the 2007 CBCA Picture Book of the Year and the APA Best Designed Book of the Year Award.
