bookshelves: humor, multi-age, pb-fiction, wordless, young-elementary
Read in June, 2012

Except for the pages labeled with days of a single week, this is a wordless but eloquent book. When a young boy moves to a new neighborhood his world turns around in the space of one week. First overcome with shyness, he packs away his baseball gear. Then,m day by day, he joins, identifies with, is challenged by a quartet of old gents on a park bench. Eventually they lead him to participating in the baseball game, and they, too, leave their bench to participate as his cheering gallery.
White space, bold minimalist strokes, and vivid facial and body expressions speak volumes.
