I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Have you ever watched a child discover something new?
Isn't it amazing to watch the wonder that floats across their faces when they have figured something out?
Do you remember when you first saw your shadow?
How you learned it was a part of you but was separate from you?

In Poppy and the Stranger, Poppy learns about this Stranger that keeps following him in the moonlight. He also meets some new, exciting, and sometimes scary friends. But he is a courageous balloon and he soon discovers that there is nothing for him to fear. Making new friends and learning about what is around you is an everyday experience for Poppy and all children.

Eli Jay continues her series of Poppy the Wandering Balloon with this sweet book. The illustrations are well done and the story is thoughtful and easy to follow. I would recommend this book to anyone with children!
