Oliver's Game by Matt Tavares

"This poignant story, illustrated with soft pencil and watercolors, will grab the hearts of baseball fans everywhere." — Chicago Sun-Times

Oliver Hall loves baseball, and he loves the ritual of listening to Grandpa Hall’s innumerable baseball stories. But one day Oliver makes a startling discovery. It seems his grandfather has kept one very special story a secret: his own. Matt Tavares hits the ball out of the park with this luminously illustrated tale about the joy of baseball, intergenerational bonds, and the immutable power of dreams.

About the Author

Matt Tavares is a graduate of Bates College in Maine. He is the illustrator of ’TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS and the author-illustrator of ZACHARY'S BALL, which was named to the list of 100 Classic New England Children’s Books by YANKEE MAGAZINE and received an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award. He says, "I’m fascinated with the history of baseball, and of course, I’m moved by stories of players who left the game to serve their country during World War II. OLIVER'S GAME is a story about one young man of that generation, and his ability to find happiness in a complicated world by holding on to his childhood dreams."
