Another great book by Timothy Glass! My kids are always excited when a new book comes out with the Sleepytown Beagles. They have grown up reading these books and even though they are older now, my daughter still especially loves to read about the beagles' antics. Each story has a "lesson" woven into it in a way that children can relate. In the latest balloon adventure, Tyler is reminded that even though you are faced with a new adventure, you don't want to forget about what you already have. Thank you Mr. Glass for another great book!

Whether you are a fan of Timothy Glass or just discovering this wonderful series, this book is sure to please children and parents alike.
