Format: Paperback
'I went to the animal fair,
The birds and the beasts were there,
The big baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his auburn hair'
'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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute and unique - definitely recommended! 14 July 2014

This is a very cute children's book that you do not forget once you put down. Its unique characters, colorful pictures and creative storyline make this one a keeper. After reading it twice, our kids can quote its funny rhyming lines. Great idea for a children's book that definitely piques the imagination! Keep them coming!
4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining book 25 April 2014

I'm not sure if it was me stumbling through the rhyming sentences or the actual adventure that my kids thought funnier! The illustrations were absolutely fantastic and the story line adventurous! Looking forward to their next piece of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 yr old approved. my thoughts of the blue baboon in the big balloon 17 Jun. 2014
By hello-booklover - Published on Amazon.com

I received this from the author for a honest review.

when I was asked to review this I was excited. A new children's book similar to Dr. Seuss I love Dr. Seuss but than I thought okay it may pass me but will it stand up to higher standards. What standards could those be you must be wondering? Well the standards of a six year old. So I put this wonderful book (yes I loved this book) to the ultimate test my six year old niece. If she loves it you are golden.

So we have Harold who's brother is gerald and Herald lives in a big balloon. Harold and Gerald sip tea and have a green cat named mat who chases the mice that eat fried rice and there is a mite on the kite who fights the troll named dwight. They end up going to the moon where they meet holly and molly who dance to the singing of their friend panda who sings on the veranda in a banana.

This wonderfully funny book reminded of reading a book like Green eggs and Ham or the old lady who swallowed a fly. I loved it from beginning to end. Four days later and I can still recite the rhymes. Such a fun tale. Like I said though being a Dr. Seuss fan softens me to love this type of book so can it pass the ultimate test. The six year old. I sat down with my niece and we cuddled with the Kindle for a read. What a trip. The book is a trip in itself but seeing the expressions on my niece's face and how it lit up when she laughed at portions of this book and said how silly and fun made my day. She loved this book so much she asked for a hard copy of it. This lets you know that this is a hit with kiddos because little kiddos generally don't ask for a book. Right now she curls up with the Kindle to read this book at bedtime until her copy comes in.

So it passed the six year old test with flying colors. Why? It is a fun entertaining book like Green eggs and Ham and the old lady who swallowed the fly. From the minute you start to the end their is a smile on your face and this books rhymes stay with you for days on end. Such a wonderful fun delightful read for young and old alike .
