Johnson, Angela. LaMarca, Luke. The Day Ray Got Away, 40 pgs. Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing, 2010. $16.99. Language-G; Violence-G; Sexual Content-G. Inside cover: “It’s not EVERY day that a trusty old balloon like Ray, who has been good for years, decides that today is the day.” The reader has to guess what Ray is now brave enough to try. How will the other balloons react to Ray’s big move? What will happen to the parade? We liked this book. We liked the illustrations. The story was told in a creative and imaginative way. EL (K-3).
