9780061152207: The Super Sluggers: Slumpbuster (Super Sluggers (Paperback))

They call me "Walloper" because I'm no ordinary hitter. Or at least that used to be the case. Now, with the pennant on the line, I've got a slump cloud over my head so big it's being covered by the Weather Channel. The forecast is grim, but I hope there's one big swing left in my bat.

About the Author:

Kevin Markey thinks "rain" and "out," when used together, are two of the saddest words in the English language. When speaking of weather, "snow" and "day" are much better! Other word combinations as compelling in their way as a bang-bang play on the bases include "greasy slider," "late-inning heroics," and "lasting friendships," concepts that all appear in this book . . . which he hopes will induce gales of laughter (another good one) in every reader.

Kevin is the author of Slumpbuster, Wall Ball, and Wing Ding, all in his Super Sluggers series of baseball adventures, and several books of nonfiction. He lives in Northampton, Massachusetts, with his wife and two children and a lovable yellow-haired dog named Happy. He bats left, throws left, and types with both hands.

From Booklist:

Banjo H. Bishbash is known on his Little League team as the Great Walloper because of his ability to hit home runs. Banjo’s team is on the verge of winning the pennant, but the weather turns hot, Banjo ends up in a deep slump, and the team skids. If all this wasn’t bad enough, his slump is covered in ruthless detail by his erstwhile friend, the ace girl sportswriter Gabby Hedron. Predictably in this sort of story, Banjo is benched for the big game, comes up as a pinch hitter in the ninth, and (laying it on in great dollops here) breaks up a perfect game by smashing the winning home run. Banjo tells his story in the first person, frequently speaking in the cornball clichés of a small-town sportswriter. Even though the author doesn’t capture the speech patterns of a contemporary sixth grader, however, his approach fits this straightforward, sunny, somewhat retro sports novel, which will appeal to many young baseball fans looking for a simple, fun story. Grades 3-5. --Todd Morning
