Randy likes space, robots, and baseball, but he can't ace everything . . . or can he? Chris Van Dusen knocks one out of the park with a comical ode to ingenuity.
Randy Riley loves two things: science and baseball. When it comes to the solar system, the constellations, and all things robot, Randy is a genius. But on the baseball diamond? Not so much. He tries . . . but whiffs every time. Then, one night, Randy sees something shocking through his Space Boy telescope: it’s a fireball, and it’s headed right for his town! Randy does the math, summons all of his science smarts, and devises a plan that will save the day in a spectacular way. Once again, Chris Van Dusen winds up his visual humor, dizzying perspectives, perfect pacing, and rollicking rhyme and delivers a hit to make readers stand up and cheer.
With all the bases covered-musical text, entertaining artwork, and surefire subject matter-this title bats 1,000 for group or lapsit read-alouds.

This is my grandson's forth most favorite book. Chris Van Dusen's books are the only books he wants me to read. All his other books are just gathering dust. Spiderman and Bat Man are no longer his first choice.
I sent this book to my 3 year old great-nephew for his birthday and he loved it! It was his favorite book from the library. His reaction to my niece was, " Mom, the library book, I'm soooooooo happy!" If it made a 3 yr old that happy, it must be good! From Luvthebogo
Outstanding book! So far I have liked all of his books....my son is 5 and daughter 7 and they love it.
