Plot summary

A Ball for Daisy is a children's picture book that tells the story of a white dog named Daisy and her favorite ball. Daisy is so obsessed with the ball that she takes it everywhere with her, sleeps with it and overall has to be near it constantly. As her owner takes Daisy out for a walk one day, her ball gets snatched by a brown dog wanting to play. Daisy tried her hardest to get the ball back but the other dog insists on playing with it and accidentally pops it. Daisy's owner then throws the ball in the trash and takes Daisy home. For a while Daisy acts distraught over her loss. Later, Daisy's owner takes her for another walk and on the walk they see the same dog that popped Daisy's ball but this time that dog has a shiny new blue ball. The other dog gives the blue ball to Daisy, which makes her very happy.
