Overview

Please Bring Balloons by Lindsay Ward

Every day can be an adventure. Especially if you bring balloons.

Ever wondered what it would be like to ride a carousel right off its platform?  As Emma discovers, all it takes is a handful of balloons and a very kind polar bear to show you the way.  This soaring story of friendship, between a carousel bear and the little girl who noticed him, will take readers to the arctic and back—in time for bedtime, of course—and remind them anything is possible.  Even flying.

About the Author

Lindsay Ward is fascinated by the way the world looks from above and has always wanted to write a story with a little magic. Add to that the fact that her parents actually met painting carousel animals, and it’s clear that Please Bring Balloons is a story she was meant to write. Born and raised in California, Lindsay received her BA from Syracuse University. She is now a cut-paper artist living and working in Peninsula, Ohio.
