9780060555221: This Is the Game

This is the swish!
as the pitch whizzes by

from the mound to the plate
in the blink of an eye.

From its beginning, as a pickup game played in alleyways, to the fan-filled stadiums of the major leagues, baseball has played a rich role in American history.

In this glorious tribute to our nation's favorite pastime, rich verse and vibrant illustrations bring the game of baseball to action-packed life.

About the Author:

Diane Z. Shore co-authored this is the dream, This Is the Game, and several other children's books. She lives with her family in metro Atlanta, Georgia.



Owen Smith's award-winning illustrations have appeared in Sports Illustrated, Time, Rolling Stone, and The New Yorker (for which he has created seventeen cover illustrations). His paintings have been exhibited in New York, Rome, Milan, and Los Angeles.

A set of mosaic murals designed by Owen is permanently installed in the 36th Street subway station in Brooklyn, New York. He teaches illustration at the California College of the Arts. Owen lives with his wife and two sons in Alameda, California.



Diane Z. Shore and Jessica Alexander have collaborated on several children's books. One thing they have learned while cowriting stories is that when people join together, they can accomplish great things. Both authors live with their families in metro Atlanta, Georgia. Diane is also the author of This Is the Feast and How To Drive Your Sister Crazy.
