Fun story. Morrison's wonderfully expressive illustrations really bring it alive. ( )
  Sullywriter | Apr 3, 2013 |
It's Thumby Duckling's first start for the Webbies, and they're playing rival duck team, the Quackers. Put on your best play-by-play voice for this one,

"Been a long day at the ball field. Top of the ninth. Two on, two out for the Quackers. The Webbies need an out! Here comes the pitch, and ... it's a long drive to right! Can Thumby duckling get there? Thumby makes the catch! Out number three. How about that!"

Line score boxes help the baseball fan follow the action. Insets offer batting tips,

"Watch the ball like a hawk- even though hawks don't play baseball."

Colorful, rough-edged artwork by Frank Morrison adds a wonderful ruggedness to the game. I will definitely be sharing this one in my baseball storytime!
