Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
In this fantasy adventure, Jake's little brother loses his balloon when the wind sweeps it into the sky. Their dad tells them that it probably went to the moon. Jake, who is "six and three-quarters" years old, decides to retrieve the balloon by going to the Kennedy Space Center to take a trip to the moon. He asks for a ticket and finds out that he can leave on the next mission. His trip involves the blastoff, floating in air, and eating and sleeping in space. When they land on the moon, Jake steps out and soon finds the balloon. Then comes the splashdown and a ride in a helicopter. There's a happy ending when Jake is able to give the balloon to his little brother. Bold paintings add to the cheerful sense of fantasy and adventure. The detailed illustrations are educational and interesting. The descriptions of some of the necessary steps of a space flight provide basic information which is appropriate for young readers just learning about travel in space. Reviewer: Vicki Foote

Meet the Author

Dan McCann was a television news producer for ten years before becoming a writer. Once, when his son’s red balloon got away from him in the wind and shot skyward, Dan told him it was off to the moon. That’s when the thought of a “rescue mission” occurred to him. Dan lives with his wife and three children in Omaha, Nebraska.

Nathan Hale is the author and illustrator of two books, The Devil You Know and Yellowbelly and Plum Go to School. Both books feature loads of monsters, but don’t worry, Balloon on the Moon is completely monster-free. Nathan has never actually been to outer space, but he has lost a large number of balloons. He lives in Provo, Utah, with his wife and son. Visit his Web site at www.spacestationnathan.com.
