Synopsis: Hoping to make new friends on his first day at Bayview School, Homer King finds himself challenged by the school bully, Maxie Butts, to the annual home run derby.
From Publishers Weekly:
These two slight tales get the All-Star Meatballs series off to a less than stellar start. The plots center on a caricature-studded group of Bayview school students who, even though they're not jocks, they are into sports. They earn their culinary appellation in the first title, when they become involved in a lunchtime food fight involving flying meatballs. Such slapstick scenes are scattered throughout the story, which climaxes in a school-wide contest to determine who can hit a baseball the farthest. Bumbling Homer King, one of the Meatballs, is unwittingly pitted against a stereotypical bully for a predietable outcome. More substantive is the second title, in which Kate, a blind student, helps Alvin win a school wrestling match and turns into a heroine when a blackout occurs during the event. Though kid-pleasing silliness abounds, these are hardly Mooser's (My Secret Admirer; the Creature Club series) most memorable novels. Ulrich's undistinguished blackand-white illustrations do little more than underscore these antics. Ages 710.
