World on a String

Description: Picture book that offers a uniquely uplifting perspective on loss. World on a String is the story of a young boy, Charlie, who finds and befriends a big red balloon. Soon, Charlie and his balloon become best friends. They play together. They go to school together. They do everything together. Then, one night, Charlie’s balloon comes untied in a thunderstorm. At first, Charlie is very sad. He imagines that his friend is lost, tangled and all alone. However, by remembering the happy times they shared, Charlie is able to shift his perspective, deal with his loss and, ultimately, he imagines his balloon as a very important part of the starry sky. [From the publisher]

Review: I stumbled across World on a Stringand instantly did what we’re all told not to do—judged it by its cover, but in a good way. I was intrigued and wanted to see more, and since this IBPA member title is currently available to READ NOW in the NetGalley catalog, was able to download it right away. The illustrations hooked me by the second page, and …I found myself relishing in the little details and inherent movement of the artwork. Then I started to read the text—sweet rhymes that I knew would easily appeal to my two-year-old daughter. I did a complete read-through in just a few moments (this is a short picture book, after all) but ended up surprised at how quickly the story touched me.
