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.
Susannah— From Ball
A 2014 Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book
A dog with a ball is one of the most relentlessly hopeful creatures on Earth. After his best little-girl pal leaves for school, this dog hits up yoga mom, baby, and even the angry cat for a quick throw. No luck. Forced to go solo, the dog begins a hilarious one-sided game of fetch until naptime’s wild, ball-centric dream sequence. The pictures speak a thousand words in this comic book-style ode to canine monomania. Ball? Ball.
