The Red Balloon
by: Albert Lamorisse
A boy named Pascal lived in Paris. He was walking to school then he found a red balloon on a light pole. He climbed up the light pole and got the red balloon. When Pascal got to school he said to the janitor "hold my balloon and when I get out, I'll get it." After school the janitor gave the boy the red balloon. Then it was raining so he asked a bunch of people if he could get under their umbrella. Then he got to his neighborhood, the boys chased after the red balloon.
Pascal found the red balloon while he was walking to school.
Pascal climbed up to get the balloon and he got it.
The boys want the balloon so they can teach it tricks.
