I Have a Balloon

ebook
"This tightly paced narrative soars." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"An owl and a monkey confront jealousy, the fickleness of want, and the influence of other perspectives in this high-energy story." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A definite purchase that will be checked out again and again." —School Library Journal

Owl has a balloon. Monkey does not. What will happen next? Hint: this is not a book about sharing.
Owl has a red balloon. Monkey does not. "That red balloon matches my shiny red tie," says Monkey. "I'd look fancy walking to school with a shiny red balloon. The only thing I've ever wanted, since right now, is a shiny, big red balloon. It would make me SO HAPPY!" But Owl does not want to give it to him. So Monkey tries to find something that Owl wants: a teddy bear, a robot, a picture of TEN balloons. Owl does not want any of these things. But then, Monkey offers him...a sock!

Hmmmmm...Owl is intrigued. Will he trade his shiny red balloon with Monkey?
