A children’s story with an unusual premise and an even more unusual conclusion

After a storied career in dermatology, E. Dorinda Shelley turned to writing children’s books. Her first book, “The Helium Table,” was published in 2010.
“The Helium Table” soon progressed into a series of helium-themed children’s books, aptly called The Helium Books. (The series has three books to date, with the latest published in 2012.) Illustrated by Eleanor A. Hutton, the story is about the barn animals having to deal with a strange phenomenon: a very large blue egg that expands and floats upwards and later hatches into several baby ghosts, later adopted by a black hen.
BlueInk Review recently reviewed “The Helium Egg,” describing it as an offbeat children’s story that comes with an unexpected paranormal twist. The independent book review publication found the story to be “slow in many parts.” Despite its approachable vocabulary, “the story’s length will make it a difficult read for youngsters, and its repetitive elements (too many pages are devoted to detailing an increasing number of animals jumping onto the egg) diffuse the momentum.”
Still, BlueInk Review believed the book “might engage young readers who enjoy magical elements in their stories.”
