Synopsis

A Boy, a Ball and a Dog by Gianna Marino

There was never a ball the boy wouldn't throw. Luckily, there was never a ball that his dog couldn't catch. When a new kind of ball (a balloon) floats into the picture, both boy and dog try to find a way to play with it, and they become separated. Will they find their way back to each other and finish their game?
