Product description

Kipper finds the balloon in the garden. It’s big. It’s blue. It’s shiny. It gets bigger and bigger, and it simply won’t burst. It’s indestructible! When Kipper and his friend take it for a walk, the balloon sails away and takes them soaring high into the blue sky. Soon they’re on the moon, playing with aliens. And when it gets late, the blue balloon brings them home, where they have sausages and chips for tea. So if you ever find a blue balloon, hang onto it. Who knows! It might be magic!

  • A Mick Inkpen favourite adored by children worldwide
  • Ingenious paper flaps which lift as the story unfolds
  • A timeless tale brimming with wonder and imagination
  • The first book about classic character Kipper the dog
