Who would have thought a ball could trigger so many emotions? Jealousy when you don’t have a ball of your own, pride when you give it a good kick, and oops… a big shock when the ball flies through a window. In this board book, Joukje Akveld uses ten emotions to tell a small adventure story about a child and a ball. In striking lines, Myriam Berenschot conjures up all the emotions on the face of the lovable little protagonist.

‘What a wonderfully successful book.’
