  • Man Out at First

    "Christopher explores the boy's thoughts and feelings about being a disappointment to his coach and teammates, and includes a blind adult neighbor who offers the youngster encouragement along the way. . . An uplifting and reassuring story." - School Library Journal

    "This should fill the bill for young baseball fans ready for the transition from easy readers to novels. A subplot involving Turtleneck's helping an elderly blind neighbor is also well-handed." - Booklist

    "Christopher's characters are well developed and support positive values of caring and self-worth."
