Mellow Yellow is the story of a street boy growing up in Cape Town, the city that the author, Jenny Robson, grew up in, and in which the book was published. Jenny Robson was the first person in history to win four consecutive prizes in the Sanlam Youth Novel Competition, among other awards. Mellow Yellow was the first novel that she wrote for teenagers.

Mess, or Mellow Yellow as he was often called because of the bright yellow jersey he always wore, lived on the streets of Cape Town. Life was hard for him and his 'good' gang, but he was happier than he had been for most of his short life. As he said to himself, “Hey, Mellow Yellow, you can't have it all, ou pellie!” All he had were the clothes he wore, including his jersey and an old tobacco tin that held his greatest treasure: a green paper. He promised himself that he would learn to read so that he could find out what secret the paper held. That secret proved to be the most wonderful thing that Mess could have hoped for. It changed his life.
