The Joybaloo is a magical creature that breathes paper roses and opens up Ned's mind to all the wonderful adventures life has to offer him if he only uses his imagination. All through the night they play the most wonderful games—they use laughter to propel themselves up past the stars and into the Joybaloo's playgrounds, where they swim in warm, fast streams and explore in the long grasses for hours on end.

But one day the Joybaloo disappears and Ned has no choice but to learn how to make his own joy. Can he learn to be happy on his own?" --Publisher description."@en ;
