Description
Illustrated with jewellike miniature paintings and decorative, tendrilled borders, this 1984 fairy tale from Vicky Metcalf Award–winning Canadian author Phoebe Gilman was her first book, and remains an enduring favorite for young readers 4 to 8. It is the story of Princess Leora, left home while the king is away. "Don't worry," he says. "If anything goes wrong, release a bunch of balloons from the castle tower.... I will see them and come home right away." But Leora's power-hungry uncle overhears the plan, and has his men pop every balloon in the kingdom. The intrepid princess must find a balloon—just one—and use some moon magic to bring her father home.

"Phoebe Gilman not only knows how to draw a good story, she knows how to write it well and draw it superbly."—Canadian Children's Literature
