A little boy accidentally lets go of his balloon. He wonders "Where do balloons go when you let them go free? It can happen by accident. It's happened to me." The story follows the imagination of the boy as he wonders what happens on the balloon's journey. "Do they tango with airplanes? Or cha-cha with birds? Can plain balloons read balloons printed with words?" Jamie Lee Curtis offers up a truly uplifting fantasy.
