Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Liam and Carter are eleven-year-old neighbors and cousins who play Little League ball as an inseparable pitcher-catcher duo. In this first of a series of baseball-packed adventures, the boys reach the highs of playing in a championship game and the lows of enduring a family move—and they handle each situation together…Narrator Nick Sullivan sounds like a baseball announcer with his firm and steady voice…He’s especially good at generating excitement by speeding up his pace and at using dramatic pauses to anticipate twists in the plot.” AudioFile
