About the Book
In this charming children's story, authored and illustrated by 26-year-old Nashville-based singer/songwriter Holley Maher, one brave (and quirky) explorer hitches a ride on a rocket-propelled hot air balloon in search of the world's tastiest foods. With silly rhymes, impossible situations, and adorable illustrations, your little ones will learn loads about different cultures and worldly fare, and have a balloon-full of fun doing it.
Holley Maher is a creatively mixed bag. In addition to being a successful singer/songwriter and recording artist, she also owns and operates a freelance graphic design studio in her Nashville, TN home. Holley wrote "Airgonaut" for two lovely little twin girls for whom she used to nanny (and who can be spotted on the last page of this book.) "The Incredible Airgonaut" was meant to be a special gift just for them, never intended to be shared with the world, but word began to spread and eventually, the book ended up on the desks of one or two rather well-known New York children's book publishers. However, Holley, being an independent at heart when it comes to her art and her music, decided to go it alone for her book writing, as well, and is bringing this book to you independently with the help of Blurb!
