Fore! Lookout for the latest shot from the Sleeping Bear Press sports title: P is for Putt: A Golf Alphabet. Look no further than the ever-growing popularity of Tiger Woods and Michelle Wie to see that golf is a sure-fire hit in the hearts of youngsters. And adults! This fun and educational ABC book takes a look at golf's illustrious history and stars in easy-to-read rhyming text that follows the heroics of Babe Didrikson Zaharias to the splendor of the Master to the mystery of the dimples of every golf ball. Sport-loving Brad Herzog brings his pen power to skillfully explain the game on grass and the characters and legends that make golf as fun as it is difficult to master. No matter what course hackers step upon - their local public course or the majesty of Pebble Beach, golf is a game full of color and colorful character and history. Artist Bruce Langton brings his outdoor eye to capture the rich and lustrous palette of the sport of swings. A perfect gift for the sport nut, amateur golfer or anyone who has dreamed of playing alongside the greats, P is for Putt: A Golfer's Alphabet is a welcome addition to any golf bag, bookshelf or 19th hole. Once the book is opened, it won't be put down until every fun, fact-filled page has been shared and shared some more. Teeing off this April!

About the Author:

Brad Herzog lives on California's Monterey Peninsula with his wife, Amy, and his two sons, Luke and Jesse. As a freelance writer, he has won several awards from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, including a Grand Gold Medal for best magazine article of the year. Brad has published more than two dozen books, including two memoirs about his travels through small-town America.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-6. Golf is a fast-growing sport among young people, but there are far fewer books about it than about perennial favorites such as baseball. The format, which uses the alphabet to lead into interesting information, is clunky, and the singsong rhymes may turn off older readers. But Herzog manages to introduce an enormous amount of information in short, effective bites of text. "M is for the Masters, / where top pros try to hack it. / The winner of this magic major / gets a cool green jacket" may not be particularly lyrical, but an accompanying paragraph contains a history of the Masters Tournament, notes recent winners, and briefly tells the story behind the green jacket. Additional paragraphs explain mulligans and miniature golf. Langton's oil paintings, which usually take up two-thirds of a page, are large and lovely, and they give a sense of the enthusiasm and skill synonymous with the sport. Ilene Cooper
