A Boy, A Ball, and A Dogby Gianna Marino
What a great book! It is about a dog who will catch any ball his boy throws! I prefer sticks and pinecones myself, but if my boy throws a ball, I will chase it because we are best friends. The pictures are so pretty you can almost smell them! I imagine they smell like Caesar Chavez Park on a windy day. (That’s where I take my lunch breaks.) Don’t be scared when the dog floats away on a balloon. (He thinks it’s a ball, but I knew it was a balloon the whole time. I’m pretty smart.) I don’t want to spoil it for you, but the book has a happy ending. The boy and the dog are together again, and the boy gives the dog a big hug! I LOVE hugs. Remember that for when you see me at Second Star! A scratch behind the ear would be nice too.
