Dog lovers young and old will appreciate this fun picture book. Anyone who has ever had a ball-obsessed dog will see their own dog in this book. While you might think a book would need more than one word to be exciting, Ball by Mary Sullivan proves that one word says it all. In this delightful book a playful dog spends all his waking hours, and even his dreaming ones, thinking about his red toy ball. His owner indulges him, but when she leaves for school he is left to his own devices. Funny and unique illustrations and a hopeful little dog make it no wonder that this book was selected as A 2014 Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book. I loved this book and think you might too!
