Shoeless Joe and Me (Baseball Card Adventure Series) by Dan Gutman

Since Joe Stoshack first traveled back in time through a baseball card to meet Honus Wagner, he knew he had a special gift. So when sports card shop owner Flip tells Stosh all about his hero, Shoeless Joe Jackson — about the scandal that destroyed the star player's career — Stosh gets an idea. If he travels back in time with a 1919 baseball card in his hand, he just might be able to prevent the infamous Black Sox Scandal from ever taking place. And if he could do that, Shoeless Joe Jackson-one of the greatest players in the history of the game — would finally take his place in the Baseball Hall of Fame, where he truly belongs.

But can Stosh prevent that tempting envelope full of gambling money from making its way to Shoeless Joe's hotel room before the big game?

Shoeless Joe and Me is a good book for ages 8-up. Joe Stosh a short and skinny kid, who can time travel, and Joe is traveling to 1919 to help Shoeless Joe, a tall baseball ball star and has long arms. He is about to make the biggest mistake of his life that could end his base ball career could end his base ball career. To find out what happens you should get the book. Dan Gutman is a famous author. Kids love his books. He wrote the My Weird School books and all the baseball card adventures. When Dan is not writing, he is often visiting schools. When Dan Gutman wrote the Million Dollar Shot won six state awards. I recommend this book to kids who love sports.

My favorite character in this book was Joe Stoshack, because he was brave. I liked the part of the book when Joe got caught by gamblers.

There are 2 main charters in this story the first ones name is Joe Stoshack. Joe Stoshack can travel through time and went back in time to save Joe Jackson¿s career. The other main character is Joe Jackson he is a baseball player and is the best player. His highest score is .408. The plot of this story is that a bunch of people bet that the White Sox would lose so they paid the people on the White Sox 20,000 dollars each to lose on purpose. The setting of this story is 1919 at the World Series. It mostly took place in Joe Jackson¿s hotel. The theme for this story is never take money from someone to do something bad. you should always do what you think is right. I liked this story because I thought it was cool that Joe Stoshack got to go back in time and meet the greatest baseball player that ever lived.

My Book Review Book title and author: Shoeless Joe Jackson, W. P. Kinsella. Title of review: My amazing book review. Number of stars (1 to 5): 5 Introduction Why am I doing this is to ell good and bad things about the book. The good things about it is it’s about baseball and an adventure about time travel. Description and summary of content The good things about this book are the journey and how he time travel to the past . But the bad thing is because all of the books are the same but different baseball players. Evaluation I like this book because of the travel and just the player and what he did in history. Conclusion I think everybody who is into baseball should read this cause its everything in one but I would find your favorite player so you can read about
