Horn Book Review

In Wiesner's latest nearly wordless picture book, a boy exiled to the outfield in a baseball game keeps missing the ball until, in a series of fantastical images, he finally makes the big catch. Wiesner's trademark hyperrealistic art contains unexpected visual narrative twists. The sky-blue and clean-white backgrounds in the acrylic, gouache, and watercolor illustrations make it easier to follow the book's flights of fancy. (c) Copyright 2018.
