"This poignant story, illustrated with soft pencil and watercolors, will grab the hearts of baseball fans everywhere." — Chicago Sun-Times
Oliver Hall loves baseball, and he loves the ritual of listening to Grandpa Hall’s innumerable baseball stories. But one day Oliver makes a startling discovery. It seems his grandfather has kept one very special story a secret: his own. Matt Tavares hits the ball out of the park with this luminously illustrated tale about the joy of baseball, intergenerational bonds, and the immutable power of dreams.
Matt Tavares is a graduate of Bates College in Maine. He is the illustrator of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and the author-illustrator of "Zachary's Ball", which received an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award.
