Soaring and dipping, Balloon feels pretty special, but Ball is grounded by gravity and just can't compete. In fact, Ball can't even make himself roll or bounce—until kids come along who know exactly how to use him to play the games that they enjoy the most. Now it's Balloon's turn to feel left out, unless these two can learn to appreciate their differences. Helen Yoon structures her digital illustrations around the perpetual motion of bold red Ball and sky blue Balloon, while for readers 4 to 7, Rob Sanders underscores the value of having friends who are different from yourself.
