Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Maury Swan
For baseball fans, especially Boston Red Sox fans, this rhyming picture book will give them a look at the stadium with the "Green Monster." Fenway Park is 100 years old this year. In addition to alphabet text, the book has side bars with further information about the stadium and the games played there. Some of the alphabet text is a bit of a stretch for a connection to baseball, but all in all probably even a true aficionado will learn something about this famous stadium. For instance, do modern day fans know why there is a ladder up the outfield green wall? Be sure to read who retired what jersey number on the "N" page. P is for the "Pesky Pole;" the shortest home run distance in the Majors is named for John Pesky who only had seventeen homers in his career. The illustrations are sketchy, but serve the purpose. Reviewer: Sarah Maury Swan
School Library Journal
Gr 1–4—This title celebrates the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park and all things Red Sox. The verses that are paired with each letter can be clunky at times ("N is for Numbers/Elected to the Hall of Fame,/10 years a Red Sox, played the game./For players honored and admired,/all their numbers are retired"), but when combined with the illustrations and the detailed comments, they effectively bring to life a piece of Fenway trivia. Pallotta's enthusiasm for the team is apparent as he pays homage to the Green Monster, the Jimmy Fund, Pesky's Pole, the Triangle, and Williamsburg. Cartoon illustrations in pen and digital media complement the energetic text, and close-ups of the fans and players reflect the cultural diversity of the game. The mix of single pages and spreads works well, and the overall design, with an uppercase and lowercase letter, the poem, the narrative, and the illustration, invites readers to experience the book in multiple ways. While Red Sox fans are a natural audience for this celebratory volume, there is enough information, appealingly packaged, to make this an enjoyable read for anyone who enjoys the game.—Kim Dare, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA
