Balloon Toons: Pooltime, by Ethan Long

Balloon Toons: Pooltime
Author: Ethan Long
Publisher: Blue Apple Books
Publication Date: June 26, 2012
This cute, inoffensive comic book style story would be perfect for an elementary school aged child during the summer break. It's a day in the life of three friends--an elephant, an alligator and a bird--as they try to stay cool at the pool. Only the bird should probably watch her back in case that alligator gets hungry... There's not much to say about this book. It's a solid B-. Nothing life-changing or even that challenging for an early reader, but it's cute and funny. Plus, there's even a little bit of word play at the end.

Hit the jump for Magda's Take and more...

Magda's Take:
"It's okay. It's fine."
