Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This was a brand-new baseball season, and the Champs were ready to go in their spiffy clean uniforms. Nevermind that the previous year they finished last

in the North American Mammal League, this season would be different. But when a Wombat wanders onto the field opening game day, the Champs have no idea just how different the game was about to become.

Young readers and listeners are sure to delight in Helen Lester's hilarious baseball lingo wordplay as Lynn Munsinger's illustrations capture the befuddled Wombat and his earnest attempts to fit in and play ball.
