Baboon in a Balloon
Baboon in a balloon, it’s a wonderful day. Up through the clouds, up, up and away! YAY! But, look out below! Baboon’s day is headed for splat! Booo!
about the author
Born into an ever-growing family and raised in the Melbourne beachside suburb of Seaford, Patrick’s childhood consisted of footy, floundering, running through tea tree, bone collecting, and ten part harmonies in the family spluttering bright orange VW combi van. Even back then Patrick was writing stories, with the Powerful Patrick series a serious hit with his parents and rabbit Snowball. After some time and a few different corporate career changes, Patrick found his life calling – as a Dad – and with that the second half of his career – as a storyteller.
Patrick Guest has written multiple children’s books, including The Ricker Racker Club, Born to Fly / The Second Sky, Windows and The Beaver and the Beasts. His latest book – Baboon in a Balloon – is out now.
