Where Is My Balloon

Owl and Monkey from I Have a Balloon are back! But what happened to Owl’s balloon? Find out in this hilarious picture book about making mistakes and finding forgiveness.

This is big and red. But this is not my balloon. This is a fire truck.

Pop goes the Monkey.

Where Is My Balloon?
By Ariel Bernstein

Owl and Monkey are BACK—and author Ariel Bernstein's wit, charm and humor are too for this follow up to I Have A Balloon.

Owl has a balloon. Monkey has a sock with a star and a perfectly shaped hole. But then Owl asks Monkey to hold his balloon, just for a second. What do you think happens? POP! When Owl returns and asks for his balloon, Monkey offers him everything under the sun…except for the balloon. Can their friendship survive this catastrophe?

I love this book because its about making mistakes and asking forgiveness.

Published by Paula Wiseman Books (an imprint of Simon & Schuster), Where Is My Balloon is also available to read on iPad, Kindle and Nook apps and devices. 

Available everywhere on January 22, 2019—but you can pre-order today from Amazon, B&N, or your local independent bookstore via IndieBound.



Kirkus Reviews praised Owl and Monkey’s first adventure, I Have a Balloon, “This tightly paced narrative soars,” in a starred review.



In case you missed it...

Check out book 1! Owl has a bright beautiful shiny red balloon. Monkey does not—but oh, how he wants Owl's. Owl does not want to give it to Monkey. So he tries to find something that Owl wants: a teddy bear, a robot, a picture of TEN balloons. Owl does not want any of these things. But then, Monkey offers him…a sock!

Hmmmmm…Owl is intrigued thanks to Monkey's compelling sock sales pitch. Will Monkey strike his deal with Owl and will they make their trade? Learn more.
