THE NOON BALLOON

KIRKUS REVIEW

Magic combination of names- with Leonard Weisgard as illustrator- but a story that seems to this reader rather pointless from two who know better. Absurdity plus- as a small cat takes refuge from the bothersome mice in a balloon and goes sailing across the world. What he sees and how he decides he has had enough doesn't make a sure story to hold the small fry. But the format is exquisite.
