Casey Back at Bat (Paperback)
The mighty Casey is getting what any failed sports hero most desires: a second chance. He's got to prove himself after his last, disastrous game. All eyes are on Casey as he steps up to the plate. Will he finally bring joy to Mudville?
It's a hilarious sequel to Ernest Lawrence Thayer's famous poem "Casey at the Bat: A Ballad of the Republic."
“Gutman pulls out all the stops...Johnson and Fancher’s paintings are remarkable...Sheer delight.”
“The ride is uproarious from start to finish...will have baseball fans of all ages cheering.”
“...An amusing rendition...wonderful illustrations.”
“...Wonderfully inventive...Gutman’s poetic updating is funny and lively. The illustrations are terrific”
“With a re-invention like this, Casey is welcome back at bat anytime.”
“Out of this world.”
“A solid homer.”
