Overview

These fun, illustrated early chapter books feature the adventures—and misadventures—of the Pine City Porcupines, a hapless baseball farm team, and their two batboys: Chad, an avid baseball fan with a huge baseball card collection, and Dylan, who doesn’t know a thing about the sport. The fictional series has a unique twist: Chad solves problems by using information from Topps cards of real figures from modern baseball history.

Pine City Porcupines batboy Chad breaks an important unofficial rule of baseball: Don’t talk to the starting pitcher when he’s got a perfect game going, where not a single opponent has reached base. Now, because Chad opened his mouth, the entire Pines dugout is upset, and the team may lose to the second-to-last-place West Valley Varmints. Chad has to consult his baseball card collection to figure out how to help his beloved Pines pull off the perfect game.

Splatterkit was feircely fighting to go to Sunclan because she was afraid of the dark of dusk. The bites on Badgerkit and Icekit convinced them to go, but Lazulikit was left behind. She was left at Duskclan, which was actually a happy clan and a sunny pretty clan. It was quite dark at night, yet the stars shone brightly and it was beautiful. Lazulikit was crying blood when the pretty leader found her. She wiped her eyes and curled around her, licking her head. Lazulikit shuddered and coughed. Featherstar asked if she was sick and Lazulikit, not sure if she was, didn't answer. Then the attacks started. So many evil clans...
