About the Author:

Alan Madison was once voted the single silliest Little League player in the state of New Jersey. Now he is extremely happy to sit in the park and watch his son play. He and his family attend minor- and major-league games wherever they travel, except in Italy. They live in New York and have a special place in their hearts for the Yankees. The Pecorino books are Alan's first for children. Visit him on the Web at www.madisonia.com.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–Pecorino Sasquatch, who got stuck in a tuba in Pecorinos First Concert (S & S, 2005), is about to play his first baseball game. When his mother announces that its his first day of Little League, he springs out of bed, but then remembers that he hasnt a clue what Little League is. No matter. Out to the field he goes where Coach Credenza issues the uniforms. With only an Xtra-Xtra-large shirt left, Pecorino finds that his chest reads, Alone We Sell Oxes. The youngster lifts his arms out to his side and discovers that the sponsor is Malones, a store that sells boxes. He is assigned to right field, and when the opposing teams right-fielder arrives, he is wearing a shirt that says hit me ear. Upon raising his arms, the writing becomes clear: Whites Womens Wear. The innings progress, and Malones is ahead by one run. Pecorinos back in right field and Whites right-fielder is at bat. He manages to lob one right toward Pecorino, who has never actually caught a ball–until now. Cantones acrylic, pen, and collage illustrations add to the general silliness of this book. The characters features are exaggerated and humorous. Pecorino still has his trademark bug-eyes and oversized nose, and his mother is a chinless creature with a wild beehive hairdo, elongated neck, and the same eyes as Pecorino. Lighthearted nonsense, good for a laugh or two, this book would pair nicely with Willy Welchs Playing Right Field (Scholastic) or Robert Krauss Mort The Sport (Orchard, both 2000).–Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CA
