Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This grandmother is a retired librarian and I know how hard it is to find a series of books young boys will enjoy....this series is for baseball fans! I bought several books in this series aiming at summer reading for my grandsons. Tough bananas for granny....they quickly finished reading all I purchased and my next order will be the remaining titles in this series. Of course, I can't order just yet.....summer vacation won't start for a few more days!

Dan Gutman's Baseball Card Adventure books make for great reading, especially for those in the target audience of ages 10-14. I have to believe that most boys still entertain dreams of playing in the Major Leagues, so these books serve as a great hook for introducing the joy of reading to even the most reluctant of young readers. Not only do these books allow the reader to learn more about some true legends of the game, they also offer mini-history lessons on the times in which those players played. In this case in particular, readers are also exposed to an extraordinary role model who played the game the way it was supposed to be played and also devoted his life to making the world a better place.

Roberto Clemente has been called baseball's last great hero. He was a great hitter and a truly exceptional outfielder who left an indelible mark in the record books. He also helped pave the way for Latin American players in the Major Leagues. Above all else, though, he was a great humanitarian, which is why baseball's highest honor for community service is named for him. His life came to a tragic end on December 31, 1972, when he was killed in a plane crash attempting to deliver much-needed aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua.

After learning of a personal connection between his Spanish teacher and Roberto Clemente, Joseph "Stosh" Stoshack decides to go back in time and warn Clemente not to board the doomed flight. Stosh, you see, has the unique ability to travel through time by way of baseball cards. All he needs is to get his hands on a Clemente card, and he will be transported back to the year of the card.

I am 8 years old and have read almost all of Dan Gutman's Baseball Card Adventure books. Roberto & Me is awesome! It was really cool how Joey travels through time. I loved the book so much I read it all in one day.
Mom's turn- My son likes to put off his reading homework until the last minute. Dan Gutman's adventure books have changed his whole attitude towards reading. They are exciting to read, mixing baseball reality with baseball fantasy. What a fun way to combine history with adventure. Congratulations to Mr. Gutman as he hit another homerun with Roberto & Me!

No, I never met him, but I saw him on TV. Well, sure I did. In this installment of the baseball card adventure series I learned about the man Roberto Clemente, who was, I will admit, not only a better athlete than I am, but a better human being. And this time our hero Stosh actually does change history, a little. Good for Stosh, and good for us to read!

Again Dan Gutman takes us back in time using a Roberto Clemente baseball card. Using this magic card Stosh goes back to Crosley Field in Cincinnati to befriend one of his favorite baseball players. While there, he, Stosh wants to warn Roberto about a terrible plane crash that will take place in the future. And so unfolds this intriguing baseball story.
Yes Roberto Clemente is a legendary baseball player and a great humanitarian. It was his love for his people and his desire to help them during some terrible storms that led him to send food only to end in tragedy. And still today people in Pittsburgh feel the presence of Roberto Clemente at every Pirate game. Surely, he is missed.
Baseball fans of all ages will love reading "Roberto and Me," I give it five stars, and I'm Marvin P. Ferguson, author of THE UNKNOWN BASEBALL PLAYER.

Have been buying and reading (with my thirteen year old boy) the entire collection of Dan Gutman books of this genre. They are as interesting to me as my thirteen year old. The books jump from fact into fiction dealing with time travel. Would recommend the entire series to any youngster interested in the game of baseball

My 9 year old son liked it but I totally thought he was joking when he started telling me about them traveling to the future and the horrors of "global warming." I don't think this agenda needed to be slipped into a sports book.
