Farm animals tell about the first flight of a hot air balloon.
This book is a funny story about the first ride in a hot-air balloon. The colorful pictures help tell the story about three animals taking the first hot-air balloon ride as supposedly told to the author, Marjorie Priceman. ¿The September 19, 1783, balloon flight with barnyard animal passengers is a matter of historical record. But the details of the flight may or may not be true. The author heard this part of the story from a duck, who heard it from a sheep, who heard it from a rooster a long, long time ago. The book does include some historical facts about the hot-air balloon inventors and the how Versailles was in 1783. In the back of the book there is a history of how the Montgolfier brothers invented the hot-air balloon.
