• Simple and expressive visual poetry that children can understand without text
A little girl begins a happy bus outing with her beautiful red balloon, but is crestfallen when her balloon suddenly flies away. The bus driver and a bear on board come gallantly to her rescue. A wild chase begins and along the way a rabbit, a polar bear, a penguin, and a giraffe all join in to help as they follow the wayward balloon. When a bird pecks the balloon with its beak, the result makes all their effort seem in vain. But friends come again to the rescue with just the right words of comfort.
