HONUS AND ME : A BASEBALL
New York : Avon Books, 1997
IL 5-8 RL 3.5
Stoshack loves baseball but can't seem to do anything but strike out.
Then one day while cleaning out his elderly neighbor's attic, he stumbles
on the world's most valuable baseball card, a T-206 Honus Wagner.
Selling the card could make Joe rich, but the card has unexpected magical
powers as well: it allows time travel so that Joe meets Honus Wagner, attends
an historic World Series game in the early 1900s , and learns a few lessons
about both baseball and living. Read this book to learn how this
card, and the man it honors, change Joe's life! (Jeannie Bellavance
