The first thing I want to put out there about The Moonball is that it is an older book. Therefore some of the language and perspectives in the book are a dated and not considered “politically correct” anymore. That being said, here goes.
I love The Moonball. The story starts with a group of town kids that are bored. Suddenly, during a storm, an unusual object shows up. At first they didn't even realize it was alive. But, it brought a sense of adventure, indeed caused some adventure, for the kids.
It is a pretty simple and straight forward plot line. There are no real twists or surprises. Like I said, the language is a bit dated, but it is clear and easy to read. The moonball is the best developed character in my opinion, and it doesn't ever say anything.
All in all, there is something charming and comforting about this book. Put it on your guilty pleasures reading list. It won’t take long and I doubt you’ll regret reading it.
