THE book for anyone who has ever loved a dog who loved a toy.  Ball! or ball? thinks the obsessive pooch and his world is complete while his young owner is there to throw it for him.  But when she leaves for school he has to amuse himself until she returns - to mixed success.  The drawings of the dog, overweight, highly expressive and drooling, are a masterpiece in the power of a few cleverly placed lines to illustrate emotion and the love in the three way relationship of dog-girl-ball is touching.
