Bently, Peter The Great Balloon Hullabaloo, illustrated by Mei Matsuoka. PICTURE BOOK. Andersen Press (Lerner), 2014. $17. Content: G.
Simon Squirrel has a small grocery list to help his mom. He and his friends go off in a cosmic shopping trip n Uncle Somerset’s special balloon, find honey on Mars and TP on Uranus (come on, admit it – that’s kind of funny), with a little danger and a lot of fun along the way.
It took me a bit to get into the uneven rhyme scheme, but reading it out loud helped. The pictures are delightful and really steal the show. Put this in the stack for pre-school reading time.
