Product description

Think balloons are all about going to parties and floating about merrily? Wrong. This superhero balloon is saving the day! (We just hope his funny story WON’T end with a BANG!) Gordon is just a normal jolly balloon, making kids smile in a travelling circus show. But when a storm hits their ship and leaves it stranded on an island, nobody is smiling anymore. The boat is grounded. The passengers can’t swim. They’re stuck in the middle of the ocean. Luckily, Gordon can fly! Can he float to the rescue? In this cheeky delight, Sue Hendra brings alive a balloon who knows that life is about taking chances, smiling lots and flying high!

  • The latest bright and beautiful Sue Hendra treasure
  • Sue is the creator of Barry the Fish with Fingers
  • A wacky adventure with a happy-go-lucky hero
  • Full of jaunty pictures in Sue’s trademark style
