Review: Sally's Great Balloon Adventure by Stephen Huneck

When Sally’s family visits a hot air balloon field, the loyal black Labrador retriever is tempted by the smell of fresh chicken coming from one of the balloons. She follows the delicious scent to a balloon basket, and—whoops—the balloon takes flight! Soon she’s soaring above the ground, looking out at the tiny people below as they try to bring her back down. Beautiful panoramic scenes and Sally’s trademark witty thoughts accompany her latest adventure in the open skies, in a book that is sure to charm dog owners and fans of intrepid Sally.

Received from the publisher for review.

This one gets four stars. It was my first experience with this series of children's books and I was pleasantly surprised. The book was in a great format as an oversized hardcover and had adorable illustrations by the author. The charming story should go over very well with small children. This is definitely recommended!

★★★★ = Really Liked It
