Celeste's Balloon


Celeste's Balloon

Celeste’s Balloon is a children’s board book I wrote and illustrated about a pre-schooler who builds and flies her own hot air balloon. In addition to being a fun fantasty, the story also has the aim of empowering girls to be interested in science, exploring, and leadership.

The project includes an interactive iPad app, a website, and a gallery installation featuring all materials.
