Story in learning:
While soaring through the sky in their fabulous Dreamship, Reader Rabbit and Sam the Lion notice an unusual island in the waters below. As they swoop down for a closer look, a strange object shoots up from the island and begins wrapping up the ship. Forced off the Dreamship, Reader Rabbit and Sam the Lion find themselves in a new land called Balloon Town.
A friendly turtle known as the Bubble Wrapper explains that the Dreamship has been wrapped up and locked away in the Pointy Palace. All objects in Balloon Town with points or sharp edges are stored there to protect the balloons. Reader Rabbit and Sam the Lion head towards the Pointy Palace to reclaim their Dreamship, only to find that their way is blocked by a large, sleeping bull, or a “Bulldozer.”
To enter the Pointy Palace, Reader Rabbit and Sam the Lion must first wake up the creature and make it dance out of the way. Join Reader Rabbit and Sam the Lion as they bounce around Balloon Town in search of musical instruments that they can use to wake up the Bulldozer. As you explore the sights and sounds of Balloon Town, help Reader Rabbit and Sam the Lion solve puzzles to collect these musical instruments. Then give an instrument to each of the animals guarding the Bulldozer.
When all five guards play their instruments, the Bulldozer will wake up and start to dance—leaving the path to the Pointy Palace free and clear. But be prepared! The Bubble Wrapper has a surprise waiting for you in the Pointy Palace. After entering the palace, you will need to solve a few more puzzles before you can step into the Dreamship and head for home!
