With a fresh new look, this reissue of the Matt Christopher classic that tells the story of a young boy and his magical baseball bat will capture the imaginations of a new generation of young readers while teaching them vital lessons about the importance of friendship, teamwork, and believing in themselves.
When Marvin moves to a new neighborhood, he wants nothing more than to make a good impression on his new teammates. After all, Marvin loves baseball more than anything, and all he wants is to prove he's worth his spot on the team. And with his lucky baseball bat in hand, what could go wrong?
But when that same lucky baseball bat goes missing, Marvin completely loses his ability to play baseball. But even though he's lost his talent, Marvin might just find something else: the value of friendship, his own confidence, and maybe, just maybe, a place on the team.
