Ball (2013)

Written by Mary Sullivan

In this close-to-wordless picture book, we see a dog's day-to-day struggle with trying to find a partner to just throw the BALL.

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. This book is recommended for children ages 4 and up. (Copyright © Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Young Readers. All rights reserved.)
