Overview

As you read the story to your children, you get caught up in the excitement as William and his parents travel to the biggest and most exciting city ever, New York City. The sights and sounds astound and amaze little William. Clutching his trusty red ball, William is captivated by all there is to see and do in New York City. Huge buildings, gigantic statues and sounds unlike anything he has ever heard before surround the awestruck little boy as he journeys with his family through the many places there are to see.

Curiosity takes over as William wonders what could happen if he only bounces his ball just once or twice. His bouncing red ball takes them on a detour that separates him from his parents despite their warnings to him to stay close by their side. Wandering on a path led by his favorite toy as it bounces through the streets and even subways, William is soon hopelessly lost and alone. Can he and his red ball find their way back to his mom and dad in this giant city? In case you're wondering, yes, it does have a happy ending.

Meet the Author

When asked for a capsule summary of the author, 42 people remembered how she broke her foot, falling down the stairs chasing a hamster in the dark, 14 others recalled how she dislocated her shoulder slamming into a cement post when bags got away from her at the airport, a few others thought back on other misadventures and smiled. All agreed that writing childrens books seemed like a good, non-threatening occupation for her. If she can avoid finger sprain it will be a good day.
Gloria (Fjare) Dunshee is originally from Ames, Iowa and educated at Iowa State University and graduated from The University of Minnesota with a B.A. in English. Gloria has been involved in several businesses as she raised her family:
Seamstress/Taylor, Antique Doll Restoration, Rubber Stamp and Scrapbooking Teacher and Correspondant. Gloria has lived in Maplewood, Minnesota for over 38 years with her husband Wayne, a Corporate Scientist/inventor for 3M. While she took care of her family, she watched the humorous things they did, and turned those observations into funny stories to their amusement and chagrin. Hundreds of people wait for her Christmas letter every year and are disappointed when they get dropped from the mailing list. Although these stories have been at their expense,(her husband and three children have given her lots to write about) they have still encouraged her to write more stories for the public to enjoy.
The reason and catalyst finally came with the birth of a grandson, William. Her daughter, Karne McGary, mother of William, is an accomplished artist and graphic designer, and has always wanted to illustrate children's books. This book series is the perfect collaboration for Gloria and Karne. Collaboration became more difficult when Karne an William moved to Greenville, South Carolina to go with her husband who is now a professor of electrical engineering at Bob Jones University.
