Title: Ball

Author: Mary Sullivan

KDL Description:


“This book has only one word in it…BALL. It’s about a dog who loves to have his ball thrown, but when his best friend goes to school, no one will throw it for him. The pictures are so expressive and fun! Sometimes all it takes is one word to tell a great story.”—Emmy at KDL’s Tyrone Township branch

Amazon Description:

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.
