I also posted this under "Discussion," but wanted to add it here as well: This book was illustrated, but not written, by Roy McKie.
I'm delighted to see "A Big Ball of String" is still enjoyed by children and parents--and remembered fondly by those who first heard (or read) it as kids themselves. Marion Holland, the author, was my grandmother. She wrote and illustrated "A Big Ball of String," published in 1958. It was reissued in 1993 with fun illustrations by Roy McKie.
Marion Holland also wrote "Billy Had a System"; "No Children, No Pets"; "Casey Jones Rides Vanity" (illustrated by her daughter Rebecca Holland); "No Room for a Dog"; "The Secret Horse"; and others. She had five children, and they used to pose for her illustrations. I remember going to one of my grandmother's "chalk talks" at the elementary school across the street from her house in Chevy Chase, Md. She'd tuck a giant pad of paper under her arm, toss a box of crayons into her pocketbook, and walk across Rosemary Circle to the school. I remember feeling shy but proud to tag along into a classroom full of kids, where she'd sit on a stool and tell stories, illustrating them as she went along.
