Raccoon and the Hot Air Balloon Blog Tour, Day 5 – Mini Reviewers

Touching down over at Mini Reviewers for Day 5 on our blog tour!

Raccoon is in search of adventure! A hot air balloon looks like the perfect way for her to experience flying…but how do you get down?

Lily-May’s thoughts: A really good book where a little Raccoon does something nice for a bird that he finds scary. The Racoon goes on a fun adventure in a balloon, I didn’t think he would be able to get back down when it was going higher into the sky! I liked the ending, it’s nice to do nice things for others…. will we see him in the boat?

Mums thoughts: What a lovely theme to the story, very heartwarming. Beautifully written and the illustrations are gorgeous – bright, bold and detailed.

Thank you, Lily-May and Nicola!
