5 out of 5 stars
The Gunn family love their beautiful country home, but when a nasty factory is built across the road, they decide to attach a balloon to their house and float around the world looking for a new peaceful place to live.

I adore this book. I’ve read it several times now, and it is delightful every time!

I love all the different places that they visit; a desert oasis, the top of the Acropolis, an island with cannibals, a small village in the Alps, and the beautiful beaches of the French Riviera.

The adventure is so much fun, and there is always something crazy happening!

I love the sweet characters! Each member of the family has their own personality and I love the way that they work together. I especially love Mrs. Gunn and her daughter Petal. They are strong women who conquer the world with their kindness and compassion.
