    9. Mick Inkpen amazingly puts this book together This book creates a sense of impossibilities to the reader For instance, the reader believes that a balloon can be stretch, bitten and squeezed, without the balloon bursting The story in this book is quite humorous, especially when you are reading this book to a class of nursery children This is because children are astounded by the different shapes and things that the small boy could do to the balloon As a consequence the children start to imagine a [...]

    11. I LOVE this story I used it for a bilingual story time program about balloons and ovals to celebrate the Stanislaus County Library s 100th birthday In this story, Kipper only I don t think Inkpen uses the name Kipper, but it s Kipper the dog and his boy find a leftover balloon in the garden that is actually a magical balloon with super indestructible properties Kids will love being able to see the balloon grow with pages that fold out It s a fun story to use for story time.

    12. I remember when this first came out I was a buyer for children s books in a private book shop I hated this The publishing house rep was annoyed that I did not want to stock it I realize the illustrations are fantastic, but do we really want to tell kids to put things the dog brings them in their mouths Really Plenty of other stuff out there I m sure I speak for a small, practical minority.

    13. Illustrated by Mick Inkpen Engineered book It is a story about a a little boy who finds a blue balloon He quickly realizes that this is no ordinary balloon The balloon never burst no matter what you do It sometimes disapears and comes back in another shape The balloon can change colors It also takes him on short trip up in the sky In a few places in the book, the pages fold open to show how big the balloon can get, how long it can stretch, and how high it takes him up in the sky.

    14. What should you do with the soggy, wrinkled old balloon you find outside after your birthday party Blow it up, naturally It might not be a normal balloon it might turn into a square, or fly you to the moon Kids will Ooh and Ahh as you unfold the clever flaps and expanded pages that illustrate the extraordinary hijinks of the blue balloon.

    15. We are on the color blue in preschool and this book has fold out pages that expand the picture, image and story of Kipper and his friend as they explore what their balloon can do If only all balloons were this indestructible but I like how the story appeals to children s imaginations and in a preschoolers mind, the ends are infinite.

    17. This is a wonderful story that can be used for a color storytime, a shapes storytime, a balloon storytime, or just because it is funny Unfortunately, it is out of print in the US, and only available in paperback in the UK.

    18. This was my favourite book as a child and would recommend to anyone with a child The first lines are still quoted in my home today and will forever be a favourite.Its interactive and a very enjoyable and simple plotline.Overall its a must have for any parent with young children.

    19. Awesome, fun, sweet book Alas, the gentle plug at the end of the book for a child to never pass by a soggy, leftover balloon that they find in any ol random place wasn t my favorite ending Still, 5 stars for the cuteness and delight of the rest of the story.

    20. My favourite book in school The school had to ration it to one borrow each child because it was loved so much

    21. A boy finds a blue balloon that transforms and takes him on adventures A little long but the fold out s add depth Right toddlers and up or great one on one.

    22. A cute little story of a boy finding a blue balloon that has magic qualities Loved how the book had fold out pages of all sorts to show the balloon doing fun things.Nice illustrations.

    23. Young children love pop up and lift the flap books, anything to add a bit of movement to the story process This provides a variation on that theme.
