Try to keep up with the bouncing ball as it travels down the street, between two cars, into a gutter, down a storm drain This picture book will delight young readers as they follow the adventures of the bouncing ball through colourful fields and cities, past animals, cars, boys and girls. With bold graphic illustrations that recall greats such as Saul Bass and Louise Ehlert, and Laura Ljungkvist's Follow the Line books, The Bouncing Ball is sure to appeal to both early readers and design aficionados.
