Aiming to save the life of baseball player Roberto Clemente, Stosh uses a Clemente baseball card as a time machine and unexpectedly lands at Woodstock in 1969. He makes his way to Crosley Field in Cincinnati, befriends Clemente, delivers his warning, and returns home. With a third of the book left to go, the tenth Baseball Card Adventure book takes a turn that will surprise devoted fans of the series. While the two distinct journeys take the book in different directions, and the writing occasionally sounds purposeful, this series entry is both amusing and informative. Grades 4-6. --Carolyn Phelan
