A big, green ball of string becomes a most unusual soccer ball in this imaginative and enchanting picture book. Wanting to play soccer but lacking a ball, George makes do with the titular big ball of string. Rhythmic, read-aloud text describes George's dribbling adventures around town, from his home, to main street, to the park, and back again. Charming watercolor illustrations trace George's fun with his makeshift toy as the bright green string unravels while he plays, encouraging children to see ordinary household objects in new ways while they follow George's sporting fun.
