Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Little stories, jokes and other amusing information about the game of baseball and its stars fill this book, e.g. the all-cooking team Bob Lemon, Darryl Strawberry, Jim Rice etc. More than 50 jokes to tickle your funny bone and amusing illustrations fill every page of the book.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5The title of this short compilation is somewhat deceiving, as the book includes funny anecdotes from baseball history, references to players' unusual names or nicknames, and some jokes and riddles. The jokes, mostly dialogues, are largely unsuccessful: "Catcher: `You look a little nervous out there today.' Pitcher: `Whenever I pitch against the Cubs, I just can't bear it.' " The anecdotes, however, contain the sort of goofy bits of trivia that have sustained baseball fans for years. Adding to the presentation are Vasconcellos's pen-and-ink cartoons, with a particularly effective frog in the outfield snaring a fly ball. This volume seems somewhat slapped together, but Christopher's popularity should keep it from collecting dust on the shelf.Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Library, IL
