Overview -
"This tightly paced narrative soars." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Owl has a balloon. Monkey does not. What will happen next? Hint: this is not a book about sharing.

Owl has a red balloon. Monkey does not. "That red balloon matches my shiny red tie," says Monkey. "I'd look fancy walking to school with a shiny red balloon. The only thing I've ever wanted, since right now, is a shiny, big red balloon. It would make me SO HAPPY " But Owl does not want to give it to him. So Monkey tries to find something that Owl wants: a teddy bear, a robot, a picture of TEN balloons. Owl does not want any of these things. But then, Monkey offers him...a sock

Hmmmmm...Owl is intrigued. Will he trade his shiny red balloon with Monkey?
