Overview

Ludlow Grebe has an overactive imagination: he's sure there are monsters in the closet and sharks in the rainwater.Then Ludlow's parents decide to sign him up with a local Little League team, the Oswald City Hornets. Ludlow's told to play "far, far back," so far back, in fact, that he ends up in ANOTHER field where monsters are in the crowd and insects are on the field. Ludlow even pinch-hits a home run for the beetle baseballers! With his wildly imaginative story and delightfully bizarre illustrations, Mark Teague hits this hilarious baseball tale right out of the park.

When Ludlow begins to play baseball to help combat his fear of night monsters, he is placed so far out in the outfield that he becomes involved with an adjacent game in which a most astonishing thing happens.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Languishing in a distant outfield position, champion daydreamer Ludlow Grebe is whisked off to a parallel ballgame, where he pinch - hits for a team of large green beetles. ``Teague's robust illustrations,'' said PW , ``are filled with sly detail . . . and his prose is as droll as ever.'' Ages 6-9. (June)
School Library Journal
