This books saving grace is it's illustrations. Such feeling and depth is depicted in each page, yet the text falls flat. I know the book got a starred review in Kirkus, so maybe I'm missing something! I did like the story, and the idea of the story (A little boy getting to see the Negro Leaguers), but the text seemed choppy and didn't flow easily from page to page. Do check it out though! The oil paintings are gorgeous.
