Rose's Adventures Series
Featured here is a series of children's books I've written and illustrated, inspired by a balloon that floated around my house.
Book 1 in the Series Rose's Adventures.
A heart-shaped rose-colored balloon floats around its owner’s house after being brought home from her retirement party. The balloon, named Rose, is on quite an adventure after she sees the majestic big balloons in the sky from the windows of the house. Her journey takes her on a search for a way out as she longs to fly in the sky with the big balloons, hot-air balloons which carry people in their basket and soar over the beautiful country side.
Book 2 in the Series Rose's Adventures,
Once Rose begins to fly around in the sky, she discovers a lily pond full of lily pads with beautiful flowers. She befriends one of the flowers, named Lily, who joins Rose as she soars the countryside. Together, they discover all kinds of fun things, including Barbie and Tommy trying to find them. Their discoveries are shared in this story, but their favorite things of all are lily pad ponds.
Book 3 in the Series Rose's Adventures.
Rose and Lily discover another friend, named Violet, which is also the last color of the rainbow. Together the three fly around to discover beautiful rainbows, and the story describes some of the things they might find at the end of each rainbow.
