Color Illustrations; This is a very early Frank Asch title. This book is in Near Fine condition and has a Very Good+ dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The white dust jacket has some ground-in dirt and some beginning tidemarking to the flap edges. This book is the fourth book written and illustrated by Frank Asch (following George's Store, etc). This book tells the story of a man and his balloon through their adventures together in a book completely without words. Strangely, the balloon is green in color, though the blue might be refering to the balloon's temperament.
