Larry Dane Brimner is the author of several nonfiction books for children.From Booklist:
Reviewed with Larry Dane Brimner's The Big Tee Ball Game.
Gr. 1-2. From the Rookie Choices series, these simple stories feature three good friends who call themselves the Corner Kids. In Box, they find a large cardboard carton. Three J (Jeffery James Judson) wants to make it into a fort, but Gabby prefers a race car, and Alex, a pirate ship. They pull the box in different directions, until it slightly rips. At Three J's suggestion, they stop tugging and start talking until they compromise and make the box into a clubhouse. In Game, Gabby ensures her team's victory in a tee ball game by sticking the ball to the tee with gum. Later, she regrets her poor judgment and confesses, causing her team to forfeit the game. Kids who have actually played tee ball may have trouble getting beyond the physical implausibility of Gabby's trick. Those who keep going will sympathize. Game is about sportsmanship, while Box focuses on communication. Adults concerned about character education will, no doubt, be pleased to have the thematic value of each book pointed out in large letters on a separate page before the actual story begins, while children can be counted on to skip over that page to get to the good parts. The expressive ink-and-watercolor-wash illustrations create a light, appealing look for the multicultural cast of characters. Carolyn Phelan
