Book Review: The Blue Baboon in the Big Balloon by Sarah and Steven Mostyn

About the Book:

Oh, what adventures they have! Meet Harold the blue baboon. He has tea at half past three every afternoon. In his big balloon, Harold takes flight with a cast of delightful friends, as they soar off on a quest to explore outer space.

Haroldā€™s traveling companions include a troll named Dwight who wears red tights and fights with a feisty orange mite; Holly and Molly, prancing raccoons that live on the moon; and their friend Miranda, quite a talented panda who sings on her veranda.


My thoughts:

This is a cute children’s book with wonderful illustrations and simple language. The simple story of Harold the baboon as he goes to the moon in his hot air balloon with a whole lot of animal friends is something that will end up entertaining everyone. The story is presented in a unique way in the form of a rhyme making it sound more like a song if read aloud. It is creative, funny and something most children will enjoy.
