The Twenty-One Balloons, by William du Bois


A fun book with a lot of potential, but it never really goes anywhere. It was an easy and enjoyable read, but mostly it reminded me of other, better books I've read or movies I've watched. So while I liked the book, I found myself wishing I were reading From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler or watching Swiss Family Robinson or Dr. Doolittle (the Rex Harrison version) or Gulliver's Travels (Richard Harris version) or UP instead.
