That morning as I woke up, I saw it. Close to the legs of my bed there was a ball that did not belong to me. I don’t know where it came from. It showed up. From the very day when a ball enters into his room through the window, the child who is narrating this story won’t be at peace… What does this ball want? Does it want to take the child’s place? The child observes how the ball creates a bond of friendship with his toys. The balls’ intentions must be ominous. Obsessed by it, the child will try to get rid of the intruder, but will make things even worse. A slightly claustrophobic story that, using clear, concise, measured words, creates a beautiful contrast with the colorful images that depict a joyful, fantastic world. This story will promote conversation and debate about the relationship among the members of a group, new arrivals, and the place that each one of us occupies in the world.
