Illustrated by Ryan Goldsberry

Ages 2 and up.

What if you woke up one morning and you were floating? What was supposed to be an ordinary school field trip turns out to be a real adventure filled with monkeys, elephants, kites, balloons, and a great big airplane, all of them leaving one little boy wondering if he’ll ever come down.

"This delightful story is accompanied by bright, fanciful illustrations. The youngster's face is drawn with lots of expression, indicating his fear and delight at being able to float. The tall size of the book allows for vertical pictures and aerial scenes that match the tone of the story. Match this whimsical fantasy with David Weisner's Tuesday (Clarion, 1991) for an amusing airborne storytime." —Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT
