The Blue Baboon in the Big Balloon

The Blue Baboon in the Big Balloon, by Sarah & Steve Mostyn
(Mostyn Books, 2014), pb., 32 pp.

Ages 3-8
List $12.95

This is a fun, lighthearted book which we enjoyed. There is no deep message here, but the authors have fun making rhymes and tongue twisters in the context of a silly story. My 8 year old daughter, 6 year old son and I laughed along with the story and had a good time. How can you go wrong with a blue baboon in a big balloon, a cat named Matt, a family of mice who eat fried rice, and an orange mite who likes to fight with a troll named Dwight? And that’s not all! Throw in a flight to the moon where there are raccoons in cocoons and a panda on the veranda, and it’s enough of a deusey to make you woozy!

This is the first children book from this husband and wife duo and I look forward to more from them.
