Ball Book Review

book cover for the children's picture book BALL by Mary Sullivan

Title: Ball
Written by Mary Sullivan
Illustrated by Mary Sullivan
Recommended Ages: 4-7 years
Published: Houghton Mifflin Books for Children (April 2, 2013)

A simple & hilarious read! I must admit, I was a bit skeptical about this book with its single word story line, but it is so creative and fun to read.

This clever book written & illustrated by Mary Sullivan is full of expressive illustrations and well placed type. The book has just one word ‘ball’, but coupled with the expressions on the dog’s face it is easy to use your imagination to read this story with the emphasis I’m sure the dog in the story intended for you to use! This book is also a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book & a Junior Library Guild Selection.
