Amazing stories can be told with almost no words, as Anne Villeneuve demonstrates in The Red Scarf, originally published in French as L’echarpe rouge.

One day, a taxi driver finds a red scarf left behind in his cab by a customer. Determined to find the scarf’s owner, the cabbie unknowingly walks into a world filled with strange characters: a friendly lizard, a mischievous bear, a fearsome lion and his tamer, a daredevil, and a mysterious magician. Before he knows it, the cabbie becomes part of the show. Young readers will relish this almost wordless picture book about a seemingly ordinary day, which quickly turns into an extraordinary adventure.


ANNE VILLENEUVE’s art has appeared in magazines, ads, and so many children’s books that she’s lost count. Her illustrations for children’s books have won her many honors, including the Governor General’s Literary Award – Children’s Illustration and the TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award for L’echarpe rouge (The Red Scarf), which she both wrote and illustrated. According to Anne, happiness can be found at the end of a dock. She loves Romeo and Juliette, her cats. They like her too, as long as she gives them food. Anne Villeneuve lives in Quebec.
