Here's a new volume every bit as charming and as mesmerizing as its companion, The Adventures of Polo. When the resourceful dog sets aside his brand-new book and drifts off to sleep, a curious little creature makes off with it. Polo follows in hot pursuit, setting the stage for a new series of adventures--into the sky, to a mysterious cloud made of cotton candy, through fun-house mirrors, on hot air balloons, across a desert and into the jungle. As before, Polo's journey is packed with incident and expression--80 pages of seamless, satisfying picture storytelling that call to mind the worlds of classic animated film, comics, and books.
Régis Faller is the author of The Adventures of Polo, published in May 2006 by Roaring Brook Press, and over 20 other books for children. Readers can discover more of Polo's world at www.chezpolo.com. Mr. Faller lives in Paris.
