Jamilah used to work in her mother’s shop, selling balloons that made everyone happy. But when a horrible storm destroys their business, she, her mother, and her sister are forced to live penniless in a tent. Jamilah’s sister doesn’t care, wanting only the most expensive items that money can buy. Jamilah only desires one thing though: A balloon. Once the heart of their business, it’s now the only chance of making her family smile again. There’s a magical balloon castle, but a monstrous prince lives there with his servants. Follow along with Ms. Clown as she uses magic, balloons, puppets, and singing to tell how a rainbow can be born from even the most horrible of storms.
