Read an Excerpt

Remember that section I told you about at the beginning of the book? The one that gives you all sorts of useful information, but one that can seem a little . . . mundane . . . when you are starting and excited to learn the art that is balloon twisting? It's here. Please don't close the book. This stuff is important. I promise. We'll discuss everything from pump selection to balloon storage. Having the right equipment is important-it doesn't matter how well you can make a princess if your pump breaks, or how cool your tank is if your balloons keep popping.

I found this book to be a good source for the beginning balloon twister. Great for kids & adults to learn from. You learn the twists involved in m making balloon animals. The projects do become more challenging as you go along. I myself enjoyed the book even though it was too easy for me (I do balloon twisting professionally). A good buy that I do RECOMMEND.
