Summary:The absurd tale of a princess who floats up into the air unless tied or weighed down. Hyacinth tricks the balloon man into allowing her to float with his balloons one day. When he turns her loose by accident, Hyacinth enjoys the freedom, but soon discovers she has no way to return. An unlikely rescuer leads to a friendship, if not a solution to her problem, and a happy ending for all.
Review:Multicolored text of varying sizes may help visual processers to stay focused, and hilarious illustrations will keep everyone in stitches. The ending may disappoint some readers, but not enough to ruin this very charming story.
