Sally's Great Balloon Adventure

Stephen Huneck, Author, Stephen Huneck, Illustrator . Abrams $16.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8109-8331-1

This black Lab's family takes her to a balloon festival in the late Huneck's final Sally adventure. There, she follows the scent of fried chicken right into a balloon gondola, and up and away she goes. Though “Sally feels lucky to be alone with such delicious-smelling chicken,” a media frenzy erupts on the ground. Finally, when kids call out the name of her favorite game—“Tug-of-war”—she pulls on the rope and the balloon safely lands. Huneck's stately woodcut prints, featuring self-assured Sally's black and white–flecked silhouette against bold tableaus, lends the book a steadfast charm. Ages 4–8. (Apr.)
