Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Author-illustrator Matt Tavares hits the ball out of the park with a luminously illustrated tale about the joy of baseball, generational bonds, and the immutable power of dreams.

Oliver Hall loves baseball. He loves the ritual of helping out in his grandfathers store, Halls Nostalgia, and he loves listening to Grandpa Halls innumerable baseball stories. But one day, Oliver makes a startling discovery. It seems his grandfather has kept one very special story a secret: his own. With stunning black-and-white and sepia-tone illustrations and a heartwarming narrative, Matt Tavares portrays one mans lifelong love of the game, and the enduring legacy he passes on to his grandchild.

Synopsis:

Set during the 1940s and present-day Chicago, this story celebrates baseball and Chicago's favorite team with a nostalgic twist. Stunning black-and-white and sepia-tone illustrations enhance this portrayal of one man's lifelong love of baseball.

About the Author

Matt Tavares is a graduate of Bates College in Maine. He is the illustrator of TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS and the author-illustrator of ZACHARY'S BALL, which was named to the list of 100 Classic New England Childrens Books by YANKEE MAGAZINE and received an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award. He says, "Im fascinated with the history of baseball, and of course, Im moved by stories of players who left the game to serve their country during World War II. OLIVER'S GAME is a story about one young man of that generation, and his ability to find happiness in a complicated world by holding on to his childhood dreams."
