A Balloon Ride : “A Balloon Ride” by H.S. Venkateshamurthy, is a simple book, with stunning illustrations from Shivam Choudhary and a heart warming story. It introduces children to a ‘little prankster’ who answers questions asked to him, both the speakers forming a story about balloons and their Yentanna. This ‘little prankster tells how Yentanna soars in the sky along with the balloons and comes back after the moon bids him goodbye. The book uses the Balloon, a universally adored play thing. It indulges their fascinations of how far the balloon could travel. Would it touch the sky? Can it meet the Moon and the Stars? The story is narrated in prose and would be a unique challenge for little readers.
