Randy Riley's Really Big Hit

By Chris Van Dusen
Illustrated by Chris Van Dusen

“With all the bases covered — musical text, entertaining artwork, and surefire subject matter — this title bats 1,000 for group or lapsit read-alouds.” — School Library Journal

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. 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 his science smarts, and devises a plan that will save the day in a spectacular way. Once again, with visual humor, dizzying perspectives, perfect pacing, and rollicking rhyme, Chris Van Dusen delivers a hit that will make readers stand up and cheer.

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