A Big Ball of String

A young boy recycles old string to make himself A Big Ball of String. But what can he do with his big ball of string when he has to stay home in bed with a cold in his head? Why, a lot of things! First published in 1958, Marion Holland’s story and Roy McKie’s illustrations remind us that even though times have changed, a childs creativity and ability to turn simple objects into imaginative playthings remains the same.
