Overview

Next up to the plate--book #5 in our early chapter book mystery series, where each book is set in a different American ballpark!

The stars are out in Kansas City . . . the baseball stars, that is! Mike and Kate are at the All-Star game, and even get to go on the field during the Home Run Derby to catch pop-ups! That's where they meet Andy, whose dad, Josh Robinson, is an All-Star catcher. But before the Home Derby ends, Josh finds himself in hot water. Someone is playing practical jokes on the other players, and the coach is sure it's him. Andy swears his dad is innocent. Who would want to frame Josh? And why?

The All-Star Joker includes a fun fact page about Kansas City's stadium.

Cross Ron Roy's A to Z mystery series with Matt Christopher's sports books and you get the Ballpark Mysteries: fun, puzzling whodunnits aimed at the younger brothers and sisters of John Feinstein's fans.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kim Harris Thacker
Mike and Kate know plenty about playing baseball and about solving mysteries—certainly enough to know that when bases are stolen during a game, it is no crime. But then, Mike and Kate are not out to catch a thief. They are looking for a practical joker whose schemes suggest he is intent on framing an all-star catcher for his mischief...and landing that catcher on the bench for a big game. This fifth "Ballpark Mysteries" series chapter book (which is part of the "Stepping Stones" series) contains numerous lively black-and-white illustrations and is aimed at the baseball lover. It includes baseball-related words that young readers who are not so enthusiastic about the sport may not know, such as "bull pen," "dugout," and "outfield wall." There is also a brief chapter in the middle of the book that has nothing to do with the mystery Mike and Kate and their new friend, Andy (the son of the all-star catcher) wish to solve, but is loaded with true-to-life information about the Kansas City Royals' Kauffman Stadium. More facts (called "Dugout Notes") about Kansas City and the Kauffman Stadium can be found at the back of the book. Reviewer: Kim Harris Thacker
