Reviews

Starred Review, Booklist, December 15, 2008:
"Hand this book to kids unconvinced by Koufax's mind-boggling numbers, or to the ones who know why they're so mind boggling to begin with."

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, January 5, 2009:
"Not just a home run, this book is a grand slam."

Starred Review, School Library Journal, February 2009:
"This striking book deserves a wide audience."
