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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
