Synopsis

The Balloon Cloud by Clare Hanlon

Henry's balloon slips from his hand and drifts into the sky...it drifts up and up to the balloon cloud, a special cloud in the sky where all the lost balloons go. When Henry was little, his brother Sam died and Henry still misses him. Do you think Sam would like to play in the balloon cloud? asks Henry. Yes, Sam loved balloons, replies his mother. Henry and his friends embark on a journey to find the balloon cloud. A touching story with beautiful illustrations, The Balloon Cloud is a story about loss, letting go and remembering those who are no longer with us.
