The Twenty-One Balloons (Puffin Newbery Library) by William Pene Dubois
The Twenty-One Balloons (Puffin Newbery Library)

bytegirl, December 18, 2006

I read this book when I was a kid and have never forgotten it, and now I can't wait to get it for my kids (plus, I want to read it again)! Part adventure and invention, part history and mystery, with a hefty sprinkle of humor and a dash of suspense, this book is always fun. In the spirit of The Swiss Family Robinson, you will be blown by the winds of fearless adventure and crash into a land where your imagination can run and grow. Unfortunately, you won't be able to put The Twenty-one Balloons down, and may suffer from sleep deprivation and cultural shock when you have to return to the mainland.
