Overview

Forget about winning, they're just trying to score!

Corey Johnson never dreamed Little League could be so humiliating. But that was before he joined the Feather Soft Tigers.

It's bad enough that the team uniforms have pictures of toilet paper on them-thanks to their sponsor. But with a catcher who's afraid of the ball, a right fielder who falls asleep during the games, and a coach who knows zero about baseball, it looks like the Tigers are going straight down the toilet!

When his Little League team gets a coach who knows nothing about baseball, seventh grader Corey is dismayed to see the team taken over by the coach's pushy twelve-year-old granddaughter.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
When a motley crew of Little League baseball players acquires a coach ``who had a great mind for science but was a total goose-egg when it came to baseball,'' it looks like the start of another deadbeat season. Things start to look up for the boys when their coach's fast-talking granddaughter Kristy breezes into town and proceeds to pummel the team into shape. Though narrated by the group's thwarted pitcher Corey, each chapter revolves around a single player and outlines Kristy's wacky plan to improve his playing. Whether it is a seaweed diet or a wild publicity scheme to end an older brother's bully tactics, Kristy finds a way to conquer each player's weakness and turns the former losers into champs. With their abundant quirks, the cartoonish characters are an engaging lot. Plenty of sports action, along with Korman's ( Son of Interflux ) trademark snappy dialogue, makes this peppy story an ideal choice for reluctant readers. Baseball fans will be sure to root for this lighthearted romp. Ages 8-12. (Aug.)
Stephanie Zvirin
The broad, almost cinematic situational comedy that has become Korman's trademark is fully in place in his newest novel, which uses a baseball backdrop to attract readers. According to Corey Johnson, being Little League leftovers and sporting uniforms with toilet paper logos (their team is sponsored by Feather-Soft Bathroom Tissue) is bad enough without having a bossy "girl" managing the team. But that's the deal for the summer when Kristy, Coach Pendergast's 12-year-old granddaughter (decked out in fatigue pants, a New York City T-shirt, and Day-Glo sunglasses), blows into Spooner, Texas, speaking what seems at first to be a foreign language: "Yo . . . 'Tsup? . . . Word . . . You should spend a few days in New York. Reality sandwich, man." It is definitely not love at first sight, but as it turns out, obnoxious Kristy's pushy management style is just what's needed to make a fat second baseman go on a diet, cure a catcher afraid to catch, wake up a fielder who sleeps on the job, and bring the team into the play-offs. With plenty of obvious misguided psychologizing and Three Stooges-style antics, this freewheeling baseball yarn is laugh-out-loud funny from first page to last.

    Great Book

    The Toilet Paper Tigers was a great book. I read it three times and each time I read it I laughed harder and loved it even more. It is hilarious when you discover what 'The Picture' really is. I also think it is REALLY funny the way Kristy threatens to print 'The Picture' unless the team does what she says. I think Kristy would make a great coach. She is my favorite character. I really reccomend this book.

    This book was hilarious.

    The book kept me focused on the fun and excitement that the Toilet Paper Tigers lived through. I was on a similar team. Nice job.

    This was a great Book!

    hey guys, this was a great book! yah, when i first read the title i thought it was kinda stupid 2. But in this case, dont judge a book by its cover!! Its about a really horrible baseball team that was thrown together beacuse they are the worst players in town. To top it off, they have the worst COACH in town! But then things get even worse when the coach's daughter from New York comes to town, and ruins their lives with one little picture.....

    EMBARRASSMENT

    This book was humorous! It reminded me of myself, and it kept my attemtion. If you can relate to being embarrassment, htis is the book for you. Gordon Korman did an awesome job keeping my attention, and this book led me to read another book by Korman. If you are a preteen and you're interested in sports and comedy, this book will definitely keep your attention and make you read even more books.

    If sports are too serious for you, then get tThe Toilet Paper Tigers. The Toilet Paper Tiger is one of my favorite books of all time. I laughed continuously when I read this book. It was so good. Almost all of the characters I loved. I have to say ths book is at the top of my list, and anyone who reads it should be at the top of his or her list of favorite books, too. You will agree this is a great book to get if you're feeling down.
