Praise for Balloon Toons:
"Puts the comics medium to good use: tracking the visual elements of the story will help emerging readers decode the text with ease. The full-color palette is simple, and the large panels will make access even easier for inexperienced comics readers." -- Booklist

"[Balloon Toons offers] a series of simple stories arranged in panels that combine pictures and words. Introducing comic books to reluctant readers has been a positive way to create excitement about reading." --San Francisco Book Review
