Please Bring Balloons Book Launch Party


Please excuse this long overdue post!  Since I last wrote I got married and went to Australia...so needless to say my summer has been a little bit crazy!!  I'm so excited to be home and starting the fall, my favorite season, with a book launch party for my new book PLEASE BRING BALLOONS!!  The book comes out on OCTOBER 17TH, 2013 (which is lucky because it's my aunt's birthday too!).  Here is a little bit of a preview...

"Ever wondered what it would be like to ride a carousel right off its platform?  As Emma discovers, all it takes is a handful of balloons and a very kind polar bear to show you the way.  This soaring story of friendship, between and carousel bear and the little girl who noticed him, will take readers to the arctic and back - in time for bedtime, of course - and remind them anything is possible.  Even flying."

Reviews:

"With balloons and a carousel taking center stage, this nocturnal fantasy will provide a pleasurable lift for young audiences." - Kirkus Reviews

"Ward combines prints of maps and colorful paper to lend a whimsical and jaunty air to the pair’s nighttime escapade." - School Library Journal
