Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-7-Middle-schooler Cody, new in Baltimore, loves all sports, particularly baseball, and he's good at them despite the fact that he's a bit overweight (he prefers the term "burly"). He uses humor to make people like him, which works for the most part but not with bully Dante, who loses his third-base starting position to Cody. There's a mystery to solve and plenty of exciting baseball action as the team plays for an undefeated season and the championship. The various elements work well together to create a fast-moving story, and the characterizations of the parents and coach are great. These adults are supportive and helpful, giving good advice and practical lessons. The coach really has no ego. His philosophy: "Please don't let me screw this up." Another well-developed character is Jessica, Cody's athletic neighbor, who becomes his good friend and defender. She is smart and can hold her own against the boys in a baseball story. Ripkin and Cowherd have created a definite winner for anyone with the slightest interest in baseball, sports in general, those adjusting to a new city or school, being overweight in middle school, or just wanting to be entertained by a good story.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WIα(c) Copyright 2011.

If you have difficulty finding a book that your young sports fan will read - this is for you! My nephew doesn't like to read much, but likes sports. This book has enough baseball to keep his interest, but also had great messages about sportsmanship-like conduct. Highly recommended!

My son liked this book. He was able to relate to the characters. The vocabulary made it easy to read which then allowed him to comprehend the story a bit easier.

He said he loved both of them.
We have,no bookstores around here that carry these and if I were to special order them I would have had to pay the original price plus the postage costs and the fact that I don't drive I would have had to pay someone to bring to the store.

My mom and I read this book together. It was hard to put down every night. It was a great read together and i also loved reading on my own. Great plot and story line. There is nothing you cannot like about this book. If you read this book you will be amazed by how good it is. I hope you read this book. This is one of the best books I have ever read.
