Ball by Mary Sullivan-ADVISABLE

Sullivan, Mary Ball 40 pgs. HMH Books for Young Readers, 2013. $12.99 PICTURE BOOK.  This virtually wordless book (the only word is ball) is a humorous story about a dog and his need for someone, anyone, to play ball with him.  After his best friend in the house heads to school, he hits up mom, the baby, and even the pet cat in hopes for a quick game of ball.  When no one takes him up on his offer, he ends up playing a one-sided game of fetch.  The dog eventually tires out and has a nap, but the ball playing continues in his dreams.  The story is adorable with perfect detailed illustrations.  We loved the creativity and imagination in this book.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Reviewer: SL.
