A boy throws a ball for the puppy to fetch. It bounces past two brown cows, three green frogs, four pink pigs, and keeps right on going around the farm, taking the reader with it, all the way back to where it started. A circuitous romp with cumulative text and beautifully rendered illustrations, introducing animals, counting, and colors.
