About the Author:

Ricardo Liniers Siri lives in Buenos Aires with his wife and two daughters, Matilda and Clementina, who inspired The Big Wet Balloon. For more than ten years, he has published a hugely popular daily strip, Macanudo, in the Argentine newspaper La Nación. He also tours the world drawing on stage with musician Kevin Johansen. His work has been published in nine countries from Brazil to the Czech Republic, but The Big Wet Balloon is his first book in the United States.

Review:

[A] tender, accurate depiction of sister dynamics, including the lessons they invariably learn from each other, and Liniers’s cartoon drawings capture the siblings’ distinct, expressive personalities.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

An up-close view of a tender sororal friendship. ... A reminder that moments of disappointment and dismay can be as intense, but also as fleeting, as a summer storm.
—Publishers Weekly

A simple, funny slice of life, The Big Wet Balloon succeeds by effectively depicting a sibling relationship and the joys of a child’s world. ... The full-color illustrations have have a sophisticated cartoon quality.
—100 Scope Notes (SLJ blog)

Celebrated Argentine cartoonist Liniers offers a warm visual welcome to early readers in this graphic novel; lively watercolors in comic format provide plenty of memorable images and details to examine and savor. The gentle humor and mild suspense will quickly draw readers in, while brief sentences and appropriately challenging vocabulary, flawlessly interwoven with pictures that provide visual cues, leave room for readers to decipher, consider and comprehend. ... An excellent example of how well comics can work for early readers, this warm and accessible story is sure to be a favorite.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Liniers tells a quiet story that taps into moments of childhood life the way that few comics manage (or bother to try), augmented by a color palette that creates a deep sense of mood, warm line work, and characters... An uncommonly family-friendly tale, great for parents to share with their kids.
—Booklist

This adorable comic-like tale of two sisters who spend a rainy day playing outside wooed our kid reviewers because it didn’t look like a typical early reader. The level is discreetly displayed on the back. 'The story was much more substantial than other early readers, yet it used enough recognizable words for my 5-year-old to get through it on her own,' says a mom reviewer.
