Bedia, Elizabeth Gilbert (author.). Meza, Erika (illustrator.).

Summary: "Arthur's gloomy father rushes him through the park every morning, through gray and rainy weather. Arthur just wants a bright balloon from the park's vendor, but Papa always says no. One morning, the balloons magically appear at their doorstep, and Arthur figures out the perfect way to bring the sunshine out and Papa's smile back; even if only for a few moments"--
