Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa J. Rickey
Eleven-year-old Steve is celebrating his birthday with his first hot air balloon ride, courtesy of his Uncle Harry. His two younger cousins, Will and Joe, and Steve's pet rat, Buster, are also along for the ride. Just as Uncle Harry loosens the moorage rope, he suffers a heart attack and the hot air balloon takes off with the three boys and Buster. When his cousins start to panic, Steve realizes that he must take charge of the situation and get the balloon back to safety. The popular graphic novel format of this adventure story is appealing and accessible. It provides readers with strong support in the form of picture clues and simply structured but exciting narrative text and dialogue. Other features, such as the table of contents, an introductory cast of characters page, a glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts present a variety of options for readers' further explorations and interaction with the book.
