Editorial Review

Kirkus Reviews

Cover: Play Ball, Jackie!

“Krensky creates a multilayered recounting of a seminal moment in the history of baseball and America. He incorporates background information while carefully and accurately describing the play-by-play details of that first game, and he also manages to capture the mood of the crowd—and, by extension, the nation. Morse’s muscular, out-of-proportion illustrations focus readers’ attention on facial and body language, emphasizing the strong emotions alluded to in the text. A worthy homage to a baseball legend.” —Kirkus Reviews
