    If this book and series had come out 20 years ago, I would ve bought it and them for my son, so I could read them too I d only heard of the series after reading a review in last Sunday s paper of Book 5, which is set in New Orleans each book takes the traveling baseball team to a different city So, as I was interested in the N.O baseball connection, I decided to see what the series was all about.It is very well written, and you and your baseball loving youngster if you have one will also get a smattering of history to go along with it, as the team members are veterans of the Spanish American War it s set in 1899 You also get to see in this book a little bit of what Cincinnati must ve been like back then Old time baseball terms are defined in unobtrusive sidebars Did you know that the outfield used to be called the garden So there was left garden, center garden and right garden, instead of the terms we use now.The illustrations are gorgeous and well suited to the time period.I...

    This book is unlike anything I would usually read, but it was well recommended to me by a respected GR Friend I wish this, which is part of the Sluggers series, had been written when my two sons were involved in Little League Perhaps my 5 year old grandson will have an interest in baseball and I can provide him with the set.This was a quick little read for me, providing a pleasant interlude in a busy day It was the first of the books, originally entitled Barnstormers Game 1 Set in 1899, the early years of baseball, when teams would travel around the country to small towns and cities, earning their pay through the ticket proceeds, a clear picture of the time was viewed The story involves a family of barnstormers, description of games played and a neat little mystery I discovered belatedly that I would have to continue on with other installments to find the solution.Although Loren Long is named as the author, he is also a talented bestselling illustrator His m...

    I really didn t care for this book I was pretty much confused for the whole first half, I think because there wasn t enough back story Which, I know is hard in a book with 133 pages I also really didn t care for the audio version There were quite a lot of historical baseball terms used and, yes, that part was pretty cool but the narrator kept inserting the modern equivalents directly after each term It really broke up the flow of the book It would have been better to have a glossary at the end, even if some of the terms would have been unfamiliar while reading I ve not seen the print copy yet, so I do...

    This book was like a first chapter Unless a kid was only interested in reading baseball books, I can t imagine that they would be motivated enough to pursue this series.

    Originally known as Barnstormers when it was a hardcover only series, now known as Sluggers in hardcover paperback Simon Schuster This has a similar feel to the Dan Gutman series, in that it combines baseball and magic, but aren t high fantasy no goblins, trolls, etc There are six in the series so far My favorite aspect of this series is that a lot of baseball terminology and slang are used right in the prose, and then defined in the margins ...

    Barnstormers Game One by Phil Bildner and Loren Long I listened to this audiobook on a short drive with my son yesterday It was only about an hour long, and definitely just the beginning of this fun middle grade series Very intriguing plot, and I liked the side explanations of the historic baseball terms I m guessing these are footnotes in the book The narration was terrific, and I d like to listen to the next two books in the series I picked this one because I like both of the authors already, and am always looking for book series for my 3rd graders Historical fiction, with a twist of magic and mystery...
