This book caught me off guard. I was not expecting the great story that came out of this one. A small town of porcine is super proud of their giant ball of string. One day it ends up floating down the river only to be found a few towns over. The townspeople decide to keep the string and seek fame and fortune from having the string on display. But the young inhabitants and rightful owners devise a plan to get their prize back.

The illustrations were very detailed and I think would catch the interest of a child who always wants to know how things work. Some of the illustrations bordered more on a diagram style.

We will certainly be checking out other works by this author.
