Nancy Abruzzo, Author

Every year in October, visitors gather from all over the world to celebrate hot air balloons at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. The stars of the show are the whimsical Special Shape balloons--these fanciful, brightly colored balloons in the form of bees, trees, pigs, clowns, and more delight children and families as they take flight. Nancy Abruzzo, balloon enthusiast and a pilot herself, presents the magic of Special Shape balloons in this children's picture book for young readers beautifully illustrated by Nöel Dora Chilton.
