You Can't Take a Balloon Into the Metropolitan Museum (Paperback)
While she's in the Metropolitan Museum with her grandmother, a little girl leaves her prized yellow balloon tied to a railing outside. But its string becomes untied, and the balloon embarks on an uproarious journey through New York City. With an ever-increasing cast of wacky urban characters in tow, it soars past a host of landmarks. Eighteen famous paintings and sculptures are reproduced in this delightful, wordless book that explores the magical relationship between art and life.
About the Author
Jacqueline Preiss Weitzman lives in New York City.
"A wordless picture book that playfully echoes the style of Eloise and the substance of the Red Balloon.... Lively, squiggly ink sketches...tell a vivid, happy tale." --Booklist, starred review
A dream-come true for space geeks everywhere, what kid doesn't dream of being on the moon or, in this case, Mars? Preparing for this adventure is arduous, time consuming and knowledge-expanding, which author Maberry brings home in fascinating detail and authority. Tristan, whose Mom and Dad are also going with the first 50 humans to colonize Mars, has a longstanding girlfriend in Izzy - who both have to deal with reality TV, the media and constant attention, as this is a one-way trip for Tristan. Intrigue on the ground in the form of violent Neo-Luddites protesters - things go haywire on the voyage. With a fact-moving plot, an interesting subplot of unknown Chinese Martian colonists, the thrill of space is wonderfully conveyed in this fantastic story. Hang on as I hope there are sequels in store! - Maureen
