Book Release “A Billion Balloons of Questions”

Published on 16/06/2022

We are thrilled to announce the release of the new children’s book “A Billion Balloons of Questions”, illustrated by the Astound Us artist Carlos Vélez and written by the talented Amy B. Moreno!

A wonderful story of a little girl called Eva whose life is full of big balloons of questions that she carries around all day — until she finds the answer she’s looking for. A humorous and heart-warming bilingual story about young children’s natural curiosity — with warm and vibrant illustrations.

Katharine Orton, author of Nevertell and Glassheart calls this title – ‘Fun, gentle and joyous, “A Billion Balloons of Questions” will carry curious young minds to the clouds and beyond. This thoughtful tale encourages emotional growth and learning while skilfully weaving in aspects of life in a bilingual home. It’s simply bursting with warmth and big ideas.’

Huge congratulations to all the amazing team at Floris Books – Leah McDowell – for helping create and release this joyful book! We know our Illustrator agent, Rosemary Barlow adores this title and was delighted to watch it come to life!
