Who hasn't dreamed of a magical carousel ride?

forbesrachel Mar 20, 2014

One day, Emma finds a note on the carousel's polar bear. "Please bring [a balloon]" it says. Curious, she brings the bear a balloon, only to find that one is apparently not enough. So, she joyfully brings more. Perfect. The bear takes off, carrying Emma into the sky. Together, they travel all the way to the North Pole, showcasing some beautiful, starry night scenes along the way. All seems quiet until they crest the final hill. At this point page flaps fold out to reveal a party of polar bears. For her help, Emma shares in the fun, dancing and playing until the morning when she is returned home. Cut and pasted paper pieces decorate and add physical depth to this magical adventure. Most pieces are patterned with simple things like stripes or numbers, however in the most clever and relevant case, the artist uses maps of the northern hemisphere for the snow. Lighthearted and whimsical, the simple request to bring some balloons leads to a joyous journey that will please many a daydreamer.
