When Violet drops her ball down a prairie dog hole, the prairie dogs are confuses at first. However, after the confusion, what kind of things will they do with the ball?

Based on a true story of when Janet Stevens’ dog, Violet, drops a tennis ball down a prairie dog hole. That’s when the two authors started wondering what the prairie dogs thought about the strange object, and, what they did with it. I found it interesting how both of the authors created a story over something as simple as that. It was pretty amusing and interesting what they came up with. The prairie dogs find several uses for it – most of those uses are interesting and funny. :D

Also, even though the drawings were mostly made with dark colors, they were kind of cute, but I still would have liked some brighter colors in the pictures. Anyways, the ease of seeing/reading the text was a little hard because the text was kind of small and it was also against a dark background.

Overall, I liked how funny, amusing, and creative the book was. There is also a little lesson that you shouldn’t fight over things don’t really need and fight over it between family and/or friends. So, I also enjoyed that little lesson. It is a pretty good and amusing read for your children, so go ahead and read it to them. :)
