Randy Riley's Really Big Hit

By Chris Van Dusen
Illustrated by Chris Van Dusen

Randy likes space, robots, and baseball, but he can't ace everything . . . or can he? Chris Van Dusen knocks one out of the park with a comical ode to ingenuity.

Randy Riley loves two things: science and baseball. When it comes to the solar system, the constellations, and all things robot, Randy is a genius. But on the baseball diamond? Not so much. He tries . . . but whiffs every time. Then, one night, Randy sees something shocking through his Space Boy telescope: it’s a fireball, and it’s headed right for his town! Randy does the math, summons all of his science smarts, and devises a plan that will save the day in a spectacular way. Once again, Chris Van Dusen winds up his visual humor, dizzying perspectives, perfect pacing, and rollicking rhyme and delivers a hit to make readers stand up and cheer.

  • A winning combination of two themes: baseball and robots.
  • This book is pro science and math! Features both in a funny, fast-paced scenario that kids can relate to.
  • Chris Van Dusen's inimitable style: hilarious over-the-top illlustrations and clever rhymed text.
