“A stiff breeze blows Mary’s beach ball along the water’s edge for miles and miles. People, objects and animals appear and disappear as Mary gallops from page to page, chasing the ball….Sis’s inimitably cheerful illustrations fuse a riot of unsullied color with deft details and endless invention.”–Publishers Weekly. “A great choice for beach-chair travelers.”–School Library Journal.
