James and the Birthday Balloon
by Nicola J Rowley

James and the Birthday Balloon is an uplifting picture book, suitable for children aged 3-7. It follows on from the hugely successful James and the Amazing Gift (Matador, 2016). This time James is heading to the birthday party of his best friend Ruby.

During the birthday party, James and Ruby are given giant balloons by the entertainer. But Ruby lets go of hers and whilst chasing after it, hurts her leg and needs to go to hospital. She’s scared because she doesn’t know what to expect.

This is a reassuring story for any child faced with having to go to hospital, and how James saves the day with a small act of kindness and a smile that soon spreads throughout the hospital.

“My daughter absolutely LOVED this book! It's brilliant.” – Sam Bailey, Mum and X Factor winner
“A gloriously touching book. Both girls and I absolutely loved it.” – Amanda Lamb, Mum and TV Presenter

Each copy of the book will also include a free audio recording of the story by TV’s Dr Ranj Singh (CBeebies, ITV’s This Morning).
