“Hit it”. It took place in Baseball field. The book was written by Matt Christopher. It was illustrated by George Ulrich. Will Barry get two home runs? This was the plot. The theme is if you tell the truth you will win. The book was realistic, but the story was moving slowly. I would give only three stars. I think the author would be reached the audience if they like Baseball. I would recommend this to people who like the Baseball. harini.s
Zoom! The Hit-Away Kid is about a kid who always hits the ball. Then a kid stole his metal dog and to find out more read the book. I liked the book because it was good and I like baseball. I would recommend it to people who like baseball and are 2nd grade or older. And if you don¿t like baseball Matt Christopher writes more sports books than just baseball. He writes about snow-boarding and other sports.
