Blue Bananas: Big Red Balloon

When a disabled little girl sets free a red balloon as part of a school celebration, it flies further and higher than she ever could have dreamed!

Pip’s class are setting free red helium balloons to celebrate their school’s hundredth anniversary. They ask everyone who finds one to tell them how far it has gone. One lands just down the road, and one is found in the next town. But Pip’s red balloon flies all the way to Buckingham Palace! Soon Pip gets a VERY special invitation to tea – sent by the Queen! Ideal for the Jubilee year, this delightful read-alone story stars a little girl who is in a wheelchair. It is written by celebrated author Anne Fine, and features charming colour pictures all the way through.
