Billy the Balloon
Daniel Moore ’84 Ag. Econ.
Elm Hill: 2018
This illustrated children’s book tells how a farmer, his special needs grandson, and a young city girl are wondrously brought together for a benefit party by a balloon named Billy. Balloons caught in fences and laying in his fields caused Moore, a fourth-generation wheat farmer, to ponder wonderful questions he turned into stories for his young daughters. His special needs grandson inspired him 25 years later to turn those musings into a book.
