"Baseball Great" & "The Prince
of Fenway Park"
For the younger sporting fans - - and there are so
many of them two books especially belong on the bookshelf - "Baseball
Great" & "The Prince of Fenway Park"
"Baseball Great' by Tim Green (HarperCollins
Children's Books, $16.99, 250 pages) is geared to ages 8 and up. It is
compelling, a thriller, a book that places its 12-year-old central
character Ty Lewis is a precarious position in this football and pro
gambling subject matter centered tome.
"The Prince of Fenway Park" by Julianna Baggott
HarperCollins Children's Books, $16.99, 322 pages) is aimed at ages
8-12. The book is especially appealing to me in the midst of
writing REMEMBERING FENWAY PARK. Part fantasy, part legend, part
reversing the curse, part baseball novel - - "The Prince of Fenway Park"
is all about Oscar Egg, aged twelve. Potter-ish reading!
