More high flying adventure for the intrepid pilot and his Aussie animal crew.

Every year, Captain Kangaroo sets the contestants on their way in the great balloon race. All the animals are there the platypus, the wombats, the koalas and the emus are all there. But when the contestants bump into a dust cloud, Captain Kangaroo has to step in to steer them back on course.

    Comments about Captain Kangaroo and the Great Balloon Race:

    This is my two year old sons book of the moment - we have to read it before bed every night! The illustrations are eye catching and the storyline is full of adventure. Plus it features a lot of flying machines - which are awesome in a two year old boys eyes. Easy to read and a lot of fun.
