The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2014 - September 2014 Book of the Month A wonderful adventure is sparked by Tin’s little sister Nickel when she climbs a tree, grabs a balloon and floats off into the sky. Tin is meant to be looking after Nickel so he and his dog Zinc set off in hot pursuit. Luckily, Tin grabs Nickel just in time to enjoy the balloon ride too before disaster strikes. Can Tin get his sister home safely? Chris Judge’s illustrations are a delight.
The Good Book Guide Review. In this exciting adventure, Tin chases his sister, Nickel, who has flown away on a balloon. They travel past a fairground, onto a parade and into a safari park, but then Tin catches up with his sister and brings her home in time for tea. This is an involving and animated book, its activity-filled narrative complemented by the striking and stylish geometric illustrations. (Ages 2–5)
