New York City
As the best artist in his class, eight year-old Benjamin takes his friends and families on fabulous adventures using vivid reds, yellows and blues to express his deepest feelings. But when doctors discover that he has contracted HIV through blood transfusions to treat his hemophilia, he must apply his colors to himself and embark on a new adventure all alone. Written by Benjamin’s father, The Yellow Boat is not about a child who died, but a child who found great joy in living.
For ages 9 and up.
