Reviews

"Three-time Caldecott Medalist David Wiesner hits it out of the park with this almost-wordless picture book about a boy who just wants to be part of the baseball team." -- Booklist, starred review

"Wiesner is a master of fantastical wordless (or nearly so) adventures."--Kirkus, STARRED review

"Wiesner conveys with startling immediacy how time slows in moments of crisis, and the way that people move back and forth between the outer world of reality and the complicated, many-dimensional world of interior consciousness."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"A mesmerizing and entertaining offering that will be enjoyed by a broad audience. A must-have addition to sports shelves."-School Library Journal, STARRED review

"Wiesner's latest nearly wordless picture book features his trademark hyperrealistic art that makes the ordinary extraordinary with visual narrative twists that are always unexpected, never predictable."--Horn Book Magazine

"
The showing of the plausible to wild might- have-beens during that mysteriously long moment before a ball thwacks into a mitt is entertaining, and there's a clever rhythm in the cutting back to slightly progressed reality (the ball gets closer to the kid's outstretched hand) after each flight of fancy."--Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
