Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Can a lively girl combine her loves of baseball (with a prankster coach who once came to practice in a gorilla suit) and ballet (with Madame, a teacher who doesn't get it about jokes, like learning to do spins in the clothes dryer)? Especially when the mean Colby twins start harassing her on the way home and then show up at the play-off game, causing her homeruns to turn into "strike-three-you're out's. A good joke saves the day, and beginning readers (grades 1-3 suggested for this "Step Into Reading" book) will identify with the trials and tribulations of playing America's signature springtime game. Take this one along to an older sibling's game if you tend to get bored there, and it's also just right for reading in the car on the way. 2000, Random House, Ages 5 to 8, $3.99. Reviewer: Judy Chernak—Children's Literature

Gr 1-2-In this sequel to Baseball Ballerina (Random, 1992), the baseball-playing, ballet-student narrator must deal with two bullies whose teasing is affecting her game. Her improbable solution: talk her coach into dressing up in a gorilla suit to scare the bad guys. Although the brightly colored drawings, large print, and baseball theme will attract early readers, this is not an essential purchase.-Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
