Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- Mike, who plays second base, gets help and encouragement from his dog, Harry, with whom he communicates telepathically. As he did in The Dog That Pitched a No-Hitter (Little, 1988), the boy counts on his pet's encouragement whenever he plays, but now--on the day before the big game--Harry is grounded for nipping another dog. By the bottom of the last inning the score is tied, and Mike is sorely in need of Harry's advice, when Mom relents and arrives at the field with the Airedale. Predictably, Mike scores the winning run. The story is somewhat contrived, but it will serve as an additional beginning chapter book for young baseball fans. Vasconcellos's humorous black-and-white line drawings add some appeal. Purchase where the previous book is a big hit. --Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Mike and his dog Harry share a special bond. They communicate by reading each other's mind. During a game of catch, Harry bites another dog who takes off with the ball. As a precaution, Mike's mom informs him that Harry must stay at home when Mike goes to play baseball the next day. She doesn't want Harry biting anyone at the ballpark. Mike is disappointed because Harry telepathically encourages Mike during the games. This particular game is against the number one team, and Mike needs Harry's support. Read to find out what happens during the important game. Although the book is not divided into chapters, the complexity of the story is more in line with a chapter book than an early reader. There are several illustrations throughout the book. Some young readers may need a few break points during the story. This story is part of the "Matt Christopher Sport Readers" series which feature additional adventures of Mike and Harry. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
