Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the first publication of Skinnybones, bestselling author Barbara Park has updated the text of this award-winning novel and made it even more hilarious. A whole new generation of kids will meet Alex "Skinnybones" Frankovich, the smallest player on his baseball team, who is famous for his big mouth. Alex knows he's gone too far when he brags his way into a battle of skills with T.J. Stoner, a cocky Little League legend with a perfect hitting record. Can blabbermouth Alex talk his way out of "this mess?

Synopsis:

"Barbara Park is one of the funniest writers around"-Booklist

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

For the smallest kid on the baseball team, Alex “Skinnybones” Frankovitch has a major-league big mouth! But when he brags his way into a pitching contest, this might be one mess that not even Alex can talk his way out of.

My son is getting ready to read this book in a literature circle in his third grade class. He loves the Junie B. Jones books, and I'm sure will love this book also.
