"Sluggers" by the team of Loren Long & Phil Bildner from Simon and Schuster Books
for Young Readers/Aladdin Will Appeal to Youngsters and Others, Too.

The Children's Book Review

"Water, Water Everywhere" ($14.95, 259 pages, hardcover) is the remarkable story of the Travelin' Nine making their way in a barnstorming tour across the USA. Spread over 21 concise and highly readable chapters and adorned with "inky" black -and white images, this is a book to treasure.
 
"Magic in the Outfield" ($5.99, 136 pages, paper) melds old-time baseball again with those inky and quite marvelous Loren Long images.
 
"Horsin' Around" ($5.99, 195 pages, paper) is set in the year 1899 and is about family, faith and baseball. And once again features those inky and quite marvelous Loren Long images.

"Before They Were Famous  Babe Ruth" by Vito Delsante with remarkable illustrations by Andres Vera Martinez (Aladdin, $8.99, 120 pages, paper) is all about the young "Sultan of Swat" in comic strip form because he became what he would become. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
