'Animal Fair' an old Folk Song from the 1800's
Somewhere, maybe it was with Captain Kangaroo and his television show, I learned the song 'Animal Fair', and the title of this book reminded me of the lyrics. If you don't know it, it is great fun. I used to sing it to my children, and now I sing it to my grandchildren. The authors have written a wonderful story about the Blue Baboon in the Big Balloon, and what a story.
The Blue Baboon whose name was Harold, had a brother Gerald, and they were such good buddies. They met everyday at half past three and had tea by the sea. Have you ever had tea with your friends or your fluffy animals? It is such a good time. They had a green cat named Matt, have you ever seen a green cat? Anyway, they had marvelous adventures everyday with their balloon. They went flying with all of their friends in this balloon, and it became quite crowded. Their adventures took them to the moon one day, and when you read this book, you will learn all about the wonderful times they have.
The authors, Sarah and Steven Mostyn, have three children who help them with ideas about stories. They tell their stories in rhyme, which is one of my favorite ways to read a book. The stories are fun and filled with such nice friends. The illustrations are bright and vibrant and depict all the adventures these friends have. Now, you will be able to see the blue baboon and the green cat named Matt. Parents/teachers and children will look forward to reading this story in rhyme. It will make you laugh and laugh. We can all use a good laugh everyday. I really enjoyed this book, and think you will, too. Note: I received this book to read and review.

Harold, the blue baboon, lives in a blue balloon. He’s very close with his brother, Gerald, and they enjoy tea together at three. They are joined by many friends. Mice that fly kites, a green cat named Matt, and many others. There’s even a mite that fights a troll named, Dwight.
One night, they all pile into Harold’s balloon and sail to the moon, where they make new friends, including the cow that jumped over the moon.
I must have read this 5 or 6 times in a row. I couldn’t stop smiling at the fun, vividly colored illustrations. I read this on my Kindle Fire and the bold colors leaped out at me. And the rhyming is addictive. I think I know the whole story by heart now.
Your kids will fall in love with these adorable characters and they’ll be begging you to read it with them. A delightful story for beginning readers and a fun tool for those that haven’t learned yet. I highly recommend and my personal rating is….to the moon and back!
