"This is a great book that young kids starting in preschool to elementary school can relate with. This is a funny story of a playground mixup that the readers can easily relate themselves with. It is a clever book that teaches misunderstandings and conflicts."
"Beginning readers will enjoy being able to read this title on their own since many of the words are repeated but in an engaging way. Piggie approaches her friend Gerald with the news about how much fun it was to play with a big ball she found. But her fun ended too soon when some big guy took it away from her. It's Gerald to the rescue, all steamed up about looking out for his smaller friend--until he sees how big the other guy is. It turns out the ball belongs to a whale that is just looking for someone with whom to play. The simple text and illustrations combine to make readers smile, especially since the bully turns out to be much different that is expected."
