My kids brought home this short masterpiece by Jarrett Mentink.The book is a cartooned look at the early life of Felix as he came to the Mariners and eventually won the Cy Young. The artwork is great, there are several references to Dave Neihaus, and the book is a joy for young kids. Kudos to the author and great job! --Amazon Customer
