Reviews

A testament to the creativity and determination of the human spirit.--Gail Hamilton"Canadian Materials" (09/19/2003) The artwork successfully evokes fear, hope, and joy... simple, well-told tale.--Linda M. Kenton"School Library Journal" (03/01/2004) Based on a true story of a daring escape over the Berlin Wall in a hot air balloon in 1979, this book is not only a testament to the creativity and determination of the human spirit, but it also is likely to spark some discussion.--Gail Hamilton"Canadian Materials" (09/19/2003) This thrilling tale will have children holding their breaths in suspense... art captures the tense, dark mood as well as hope and freedom represented by the balloons. Excellent.--Krys Stefansky"Virginian-Pilot" (01/13/2004)
