Overview

Record-breaking snowfalls in Rambletown have postponed Opening Day of the Rounders' baseball season three times! As the team tries to "warm up" on the icy field, they welcome a new center fielder: Orlando Ramirez. He's as fast as a cheetah and catches everything—right before smashing into the outfield wall. Just like a crash-test dummy. The Rounders will need a miracle—or a really big shovel—to put the brakes on Orlando's collision course with the wall and this never-ending cold spell.

Rave reviews for Slumpbuster:“New baseball series hits it out of the park.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Rave reviews for Slumpbuster: “The comically deadpan reactions of slump observers, the tautly drawn action scenes, and the snappy pacing of the short chapters are nicely pitched to readers just hitting their stride with full-length novels.”

Meet the Author

Kevin Markey always feels a thrill when baseball spring training opens in Florida in February. Where he lives, snow usually covers the ground at that time of year. The opening of the major league camps is like the annual return of robins—it means spring is just around the corner. M/p>

Kevin is the author of Slumpbuster, Wall Ball, and Wing Ding—the hilarious first, second, and third books in his Super Sluggers series of baseball adventures—and several books of nonfiction. He lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, with his wife and two children, and a lovable yellow-haired dog named Happy. He bats left, throws left, and types with both hands.
