Nothing announces the beginning of spring like baseball. Jane Yolen has knocked the cover of the ball with her new Honus Wagner book. Wagner was known as the Flying Dutchman, and was famous for hitting, stealing bases, and speed. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936.
Written by award-winning children's author Jane Yolen, All Star! is the story of a hatchet-faced boy from a poor mining town who somehow became one of the greatest shortstops in history. Boy's will love this book and will be thrilled to learn that Wagner's baseball card sold for almost three million dollars. It's a heartwarming story that comes to life with beautiful retro illustrations that perfectly capture the era.
