I read this book to my sixth grade class each year when we discuss the Ring of Fire. It amazes me how every student is enthralled by the thought of traveling in a hot air balloon for a year! Without a doubt, their favorite parts are the descriptions of the innovations included in Mr. M's house. With all the technology we possess now, I am amazed at the fact that they think the technology discussed is COOL! I highly recommend this book for anyone with children. It is so imaginative and fanciful. Everyone is sure to get lost in it.
