Math teacher from San Francisco
wants to take a year off in a balloon. Ends up cruising over Krakatoa prior
to it's erupting and falls on a curl of 20 families with stable routine
of playing and inventing gourmet international feasts.
Have you ever seen a hot-air
balloon? Have you wondered what it was like to fly in one? Well, this is
the completely made up story of one man's journey around the world in a
hot-air balloon. If you like thinking of what the future could be like,
or ways in which the world could be different, then this is just the kind
of fantastic science fiction book that you will like! It all starts when
a teacher takes a year off from teaching to go travel in a hot air balloon.
But his balloon is popped by a seagull on only the seventh day of his travels
and he finds himself marooned on an island. Or is he? (Esther Moberg, Esther_creslib@centurytel.net,
