little lit book series: books that take you places

Summer is the perfect time for an adventure and a book that really transports you.  That’s our theme for #littlelitbookseries this month—books that take you places.

"He charted a course. 

He checked the breeze. 

He cut the strings...

and floated free."

On a dull and lifeless night, and ready for a change in scenery, a boy named Sebastian takes flight in a hot air balloon made out of his grandmother's afghans and patchwork quilts.  He has a few mishaps along the way but makes a few memorable friends on a most unexpected adventure.

Sebastian and the Balloon was written and illustrated by Philip C. Stead and published by Roaring Brook Press.

Stop by littlelitbookseries.com throughout this month for more books that take you places  and see what everyone is sharing today with the hashtag #littlelitbookseries on Instagram.
