A bright red ball. A chipper dog with floppy ears and a very waggy tail. Without so much as a single word of text to read, you'll find yourself magically carried along into this delightful story of these two best friends. Daisy the dog has a zest for living and her life has reached utter joy with the arrival of a red ball. She can toss it up, hold it in her paws, chase it and even sleep with it. But, one day at the park, the ball has an adventure of its own. Enter loss. Sadness. Life has changed. Will Daisy ever find her joy again? We hope so. This is an energetic ride you'll read with a smile until your heart sinks. That familiar feeling of disappointment and the hope that something great waits around the corner. Playful. Joyful. Meaningful. A Caldecott winner.
