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 (built by Jim Alley and Rachel Vrankin), a website, and a gallery installation featuring all materials.
