Editorial Reviews

Review

“Another winner in a series that effectively blends fast-paced storytelling with plenty of baseball lore.” (ALA Booklist Online)

From the Back Cover

Stosh should have figured that the FBI would find him eventually.

Now they’ve turned up on his doorstep—and they know all about his ability to travel through time using baseball cards. In fact, they want to send him back in time on a mission: to warn President Roosevelt about the attack on Pearl Harbor!

But when Stosh finds out that his “ticket” back to 1941 is a Ted Williams card, he starts planning a mission of his own. Williams is one of the greatest hitters of all time—even though he lost almost five years of his career to serve in the Marines. How many more home runs would the Splendid Splinter have hit if he had those years back? What if Stosh can prevent the attack on Pearl Harbor and convince Williams not to serve in the military?

Sometimes you can change history. Sometimes history can change you.


More About the Author

This is hard. I'm a pretty regular Jersey guy who spent fifteen years trying to write newspaper articles, magazine articles, screenplays, books for adults, and just about everything else before I discovered the one thing I'm good at--writing fiction for kids. I aim for kids who DON'T like to read, and hopefully the kids who DO like to read will enjoy my stuff too. For all the gory details about me, check out my web site.

My son and I both love this series of books. Me, because I see my son so eager to read them, and he, because each presents a new, cleverly-crafted story about the "greats" of baseball. The vocabulary is complex enough to be challenging to his eight year-old mind, while not being overly so, causing him not want to attempt to read them. The concept behind the stories, with the main character using classic baseball cards as his "time machine" to go back in time and interact with classic baseball stars is ingenious, using a modern-day card to bring him back to the present when each adventure concludes. I would recommend this series for any elementary school child, with an extra added benefit to young baseball fans. Having him learning pieces of baseball history while having him eager to read is a super combination in my book.

This book was great! It is my second favorite of the baseball card series, Roberto and Me is my favorite. Stosh is sent on a mission to stop a huge event from happening. Who is protecting him? TED WILLIAMS! You will learn lots of baseball stats and how to hit. Ted Williams cusses a lot, but Dan Gutman puts $%$^!& in it's place, so don't worry. It's action-packed and funny, go get it!

I tutored a young man in reading through grade school and in 7th grade we found this series. He loved sports and so he picked this and others like it out and we read using my Kindle. He read a chapter and then we would listen to a chapter. Well written books. He didn't like Science Fiction, but this series was the exception, not really SciFi, but the main character has the ability to go back in time to meet the sports figure by holding one of the famous person's baseball cards and returns to home holding a current baseball card. The adventures the main character has is partly based on factual information about the player. Your boys will love these books if they like baseball.
