9781561455072: Playoff Dreams (The All-star Sports Story Series)

BRENDAN IS ONE of the best players in the league, but no matter how hard he tries, he can't make his team win. An unexpected event and the story of legendary Cubs player and Hall of Famer, Ernie Banks, make Brendan realize that it's love of the game rather than winning that makes the experience a success.

About the Author:

Fred Bowen is the author of the AllStar SportStory series. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Bowen received his law degree from George Washington University. A lifelong sports fanatic, he is a youth league baseball, basketball, and soccer coach, in addition to being a U.S. Department of Labor lawyer who spends his lunch hours and subway commutes writing. Bowen lives in Maryland.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5?Brendan is the best player on his team, but he feels "it's gonna be a long season," if his team doesn't start winning some games soon. After his Uncle Jack takes him to a Cubs game at Wrigley Field, Brendan learns about other players who have been talented but have never made it to the playoffs or the World Series. His uncle explains, "It's like your team....They aren't winning, but you wouldn't want to play for another team, would you?" This is the fourth book in a series that uses actual sports heroes to reinforce a positive attitude among young athletes. Here, it is Ernie Banks, who hit over 500 home runs but usually played for a team that finished near the bottom of the league. Appealing pen-and-ink illustrations enhance the text, but the cover art doesn't reach out to potential readers. A fine purchase if other titles in the series have circulated well.?Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
