Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: What better sport to inspire poetry than the timeless but carefully metered game of baseball? And what better poet than Paul B. Janeczko -- an ardent baseball fan -- to bring young readers his accessible, insightful observations of every aspect of the game, from the umpires to the vendors in the stands to the turning of a perfect double play. What does one do to pass the time during a rain delay? Is there really a right way to spit if you are a baseball player? Here is a collection of poems perfect for sharing, illustrated with Carole Katchen's atmospheric pastels. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: A collection of poems, including "Before the Game," "Catcher Sings the Blues," "How to Spit," and "Double Play," capture the experiences of the game of baseball.
From Kirkus Reviews: From Janeczko (Home on the Range, 1997, etc.), an extremely appealing suite of poems that illuminate the plays and dramatis personae from before the game to after the last out. These poems have sweetness and rhythm, and focus on the game itself, perhaps with minor league or local players; there are small, sure poems to pitchers and infielders, to vendors, and to the arts of signs and spitting. In ``Before the Game,'' ``Girls with mitts/practice catches to be made''; ``Catcher Sings the Blues'' moans with the aches and pains of that position; ``A Curse Upon the Pitcher'' is a four-line taunt; and ``Things To Do During a Rain Delay'' will give a new generation some only slightly wicked ideas. Best of all is ``Section 7, Row 1, Seat 3'' about an elderly woman who ``measures life in baseball time'': ``Born the year Yankee Stadium opened . . . son born during Jackie Robinson's first season . . .'' and `` `Leaving before the last out . . . is like dying/before your time.' '' Newcomer Katchen's wonderful pastels, like chalk drawings in the rain, have the fuzziness of tender memories and fully complement the text.
