Pom wears a rather fetching and comfortable cardigan with four yellow buttons and has a toy called Pim. They go on adventures together. Throughout the story they encounter scenarios that are both good and bad luck. Pom likes to share their good fortune with Pim and equally needs Pim when things are not going so well. The story has a lovely flow of good luck/bad luck/good luck/bad luck which finally results in a shared happy experience.
The story will also help any child who has experienced a loss of a burst balloon and finds an imaginative way of using what is left. The fear of a popping balloon may actually turn in to a feeling of excitement with opportunities for children to use their imagination to invent new uses for old items.
