Pub. Date:

A funny, touching picture book about letting go, from the bestselling author-illustrator team behind Today I Feel Silly and Other Moods that Make My Day.

Jamie Lee Curtis's gentle and humorous exploration of the joys and perils of a balloon's life is whimsically brought to life by Laura Cornell's illustrations. When one little boy accidentally lets go of his balloon, his imagination takes him on a journey...

Where do balloons go when you let them go free? It can happen by accident. It happened to me.

Where Do Balloons Go? has levels of meaning that will speak to kids and adults. An approachable way to explore feelings about loss and change.
