This was a very sweet story about a lost dog and Poppy the balloon who helps him find a home. What I loved most about this story is the illustrations, they are very kid friendly. It's possible to flip through the pages and understand the story without words just from the descriptive pictures. The story is simple to understand and it would be a good book for a child learning to read. It was very light-hearted and my daughter and I enjoyed reading it together.
