Grade 3-5-- Dave Dravecky, the former San Francisco Giant pitcher, discovered he had a cancerous growth on his pitching arm. After a courageous comeback, he finally accepted his retirement from baseball and the eventual amputation of his arm. Unfortunately, this potentially inspiring story is told in an abrupt, bland manner, and baseball scenes are conveyed stiffly in pastel pictures. The lesson is that Dravecky learned to live his life with Jesus Christ as the central figure, but readers are given no insight into the origins of his religious faith and so the message seems superimposed and didactic. It's too bad that the story of this obviously brave person gets such a shallow, uninspired treatment. --Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Library, IL
