    My favourite part was the huuuuuuuuuge rainbow pull out balloon at the end of the book.

    It was good. I liked it when the balloon stretched at the end with the rainbow.

    This is my top book of all and it’s my favourite book. It’s about a balloon that grows and grows and grows and never pops.

  14. Wilfred Riley says:

    I love it when the balloon gets bigger and bigger and floats up, then they come home and have sausages and chips for his tea. It made me feel hungry and want to eat it. The balloon changed shape into a square. I wanted to bite it.

  15. Caelan Freeman-Walshe says:

    I like it when the balloon gets really big and when it doesn’t burst. I would like to have a balloon like this.

    This book is quite good. I liked that the blue balloon kept getting bigger. My favourite bit was when the balloon became square.

    If you find a soggy balloon, especially if its blue, do not throw it away! I liked the last page where it all gets colourful and they boy doesn’t notice.

    I like this book because the balloon changes shape and at the end it is really colourful.

  25. djaiden says:

    I’ve been reading (or Daddy has) this book since I was small. The way the pages aren’t all the same some stretch, some get big and some get long is interesting. I wish I had an unpoppable blue ballon.
