Reader's Favorite 5-Star Reviews:
"H.R. Manske’s picture book, Doppy and the Runaway Balloons, is pure fun. Told in rhyming verse, the story follows a unique character who looks like a blop of white puffiness. That’s Doppy. His adventure takes him through town on a quest to retrieve his colorful balloons. What Doppy learns is that his determination might pay off in a completely different way than he initially expected. The language is simple so young readers can easily follow along. The repetitive sounds of Doppy and Dop and Dop Town will have young readers chuckling along. The boldly colorful illustrations certainly help move this charming story along. Doppy has a lesson to share with his young readers: don’t give up. No matter what obstacles you face on your path through life, move forward with direction and determination." -Reader's Favorite
