THE GREAT PETE PENNEY BY JEAN BASHOR TOLLE (Hardcover)
Eleven-year-old Pete Penney is the only girl on the baseball team, and she dreams of being able to pitch a curve ball that no one can hit. On day, walking home from practice, she accidentally summons up an astonishing character. His name is Mike McGlory; he is nearly six inches high, Irish, and very bossy. He promices Pete that if she will wear the magic ring he gives her and do just what he says, she will have the perfect pitch.
At first, it is hard for Pete to believe that no one else can see or hear Mike McGlory as he dances up and down on the umpire's head, shouting directions at her, or suddenly appears next to her on the pitcher's mound, signaling frantically. But no one discovers their secret, and the story of how Pete and the Blue Sox win the pennant and get to play an exhibition game in Wrigley Field is hilariously funny and full of excitement.
Pete's unusual friendship with Mike McGlory and her memorable season with the Blue Sox will be a sure-fire hit not only with boys and girls who like baseball, but with any young reader who likes a fast-moving, humorous book.
