Written by Liniers, a famous artist from Argentina, THE BIG WET BALLOON is a short Toon Book about a young girl named Matilda and her sister Clemmie. On a rainy day, Matilda wants to go outside and play with Clemmie, but Clemmie won’t go. Matilda does everything in her power to illustrate to Clemmie the fun and joy of playing in the rain. I really liked the watercolor illustrations in this book. In terms of story, Toon Books are usually fairly short and THE BIG WET BALLOON isn’t any different. Nevertheless, I was expecting a little more to happen. Overall, THE BIG WET BALLOON is a beautifully illustrated Toon Book that youngsters will probably enjoy having read to them or flipping through the pages to look at the pictures.
