KIRKUS REVIEW

Rabbit Orson Abbot, of the Easter Egg Artists Abbots, teams up here with neighbor rabbit Bonnie to make and navigate the winning balloon in a Valentine's Day balloon race. During the race, with all the balloons becalmed, Bonnie notices a little cloud above them, drifting toward the finish line. And so the pair heat up their air, rise to the cloud's level, and drift along. With Orson dispensing thanks and hugs for his parents' help and praise for Bonnie whose brains won the race, this third story of the Abbots' holiday doings is stronger on Valentine spirits than on ballooning adventure. Spiffy little pictures, as usual.
