A BCCB Blue Ribbon Book of the Year

"A simple, funny, and exciting story. McAnulty and Hocking score again." --Kirkus Reviews

"Very funny. Kids who remember--and parents who are new to experience--that first season . . . will laugh and slap their foreheads over Max's misplaced enthusiasm, cleverly chronicled by Hocking's mixed-media artwork and McAnulty's wry text in the speech bubbles." --BCCB

"Sports fans and lovers of a good silly picture book will have much to cheer for here." --School Library Journal

"Max is a relatable hero for readers who like being on the field but whose minds might not be entirely in the game." --Publishers Weekly
