Up, Up, and Away

Tell me what these have in common (the last one’s a stretch, but go with it):

Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne


My 100 Adventures by Polly Horbath


The Last Time I Saw You by Elizabeth Berg

Abby reminded me about this one, too:

Newsgirl by Lisa Ketchum

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

The hot air balloon on the front cover. I love it and its many manifestations. So, maybe Selznick’s isn’t a hot air balloon, but every time I see this cover, it makes me think of one because it looks a lot like one.

I love the hot air balloon look. You can carry people, you can carry champagne, you can carry a house, and you can be a fake.

Seen any others floating (haha) around? Do you like one better than any of the others?

    Oh that's funny! I always think of Hug's cover as a hot air balloon too. Until you mentioned it and made me look closely, I hadn't realized it actually wasn't one.
