A curious tale unfurls in E. Dorinda Shelley’s children’s picture book

Do you wonder what becomes of the baby ghosts in E. Dorinda Shelley’s “The Helium Egg”? Pick up the third book of the series, “Helium Heels,” to learn that they have become a bunch of mischievous pranksters.
After getting themselves sprayed by a skunk, the baby ghosts bathe in tomato juice to remove the odor. And because they still smell, they are sent to sleep near the donkeys – their next victims – whose hoofs are to be trimmed the next day.
Independent book review publication BlueInk Review recently reviewed “Helium Heels.” It found the story to be unique and imaginative, but also scattered and wanting of improvement.
Though the third book delivers one surprise after another, it “lacks the same sense of progression” as that of the book that introduced the baby ghosts. BlueInk found a number of faults that “overshadow the story’s uniqueness as well as its accessible diction and colorful illustrations.”
BlueInk Review’s verdict: “Helium Heels” delivers an unapologetically original story that never quite takes off.
